16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence


The Mothers' Union will begin their 16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence, an international campaign, from 25 November (International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women) until 10 December (International Human Rights Day).

Throughout the campaign, Mothers’ Union joins with others globally to raise awareness of, and call for an end to, gender-based violence in all forms and in all societies.

On 27th November on the Global Day of Action, members around the world will step out of their comfort zones to support survivors. We are each invited to wear a purple scarf and to host three minutes silence at 1:03pm fitting in with our theme of #NOMORE1IN 3.

Clogher Diocesan Mothers’ Union has arranged two services as part of MU’s 16 Days of Activism;St Macartin’s Cathedral, Enniskillen and St Patrick’s Church, Monaghan are the venues for people to come together on 27th November 2021 from 12.30pm to 1.15pm. Bishop Ian Ellis will speak at the service in Enniskillen.
