16-365 DAYS OF ACTIVISM AGAINST GENDER BASED VIOLENCE COMMEMORATION
The LRF joins the rest of the world in commemorating the 16-365 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence under the theme: From Peace in the Home to Peace in our communities: ‘Promoting safe spaces for women and girls.’ This is an opportunity for all Zimbabweans to reflect on the violence that is perpetrated against women and girls on the basis of gender and commit themselves to promoting peace inside and outside the home.
