Today is the UN’s International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and the start of the 16 Days of Action.

There’s a few events going on today up and down the country – including tonight’s vigil in Trafalgar Square in London and Glasgow Reclaim the Night.

Refuge has launched a campaign encouraging people to “speak out against domestic violence”.

The government has released its national strategy on violence against women – see the Guardian’s story on this here.

Women’s Aid has released a single.

Rutgers in the US has a very thorough looking toolkit should you want some suggestions on what to do during the 16 days.

And Take Back the Tech will be posting daily ideas for some online activism.
