The 16 Days of Activism also include the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women on December 6. In recognition of this time, Camosun College is hosting a number of events on campus, and invites the college community to both reflect on gender-based violence (GBV), and take action to end it.

Gender-based violence (GBV) involves the use and abuse of power and control over another person and is perpetrated against someone based on their gender identity, gender expression or perceived gender. Violence against women and girls is one form of gender-based violence. It also has a disproportionate impact on LGBTQ2 people and Indigenous women.
