Candles lit in support of 16 Days of Activism

Mothers’ Union engages each year with the global 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, which runs from 25th November (the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women) and 10th December (International Human Rights Day).

This year, we focus on the issue of stigma, where society responds negatively to, or by blaming those who are, victims of gender-based violence.

A prayer vigil was held in Wakefield Cathedral and prayers said at Halifax Minster in support of the campaign.
