Say NO – UNITE to End Violence against Women campaign

#16days16Poets

#16days16poets a social media campaign called 16 young poets together to use their art to stand against violence towards women and children. From the 25th November till the 10th December a video will be released each day by these poets.

From 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December, Human Rights Day, the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence Campaign is a time to galvanize action to end violence against women and girls around the world. The international campaign originated from the first Women’s Global Leadership Institute coordinated by the Center for Women’s Global Leadership in 1991” 

My purpose with this campaign was to use art as a form of protest. I am humbled by the commitment and passion exerted by the poets and rappers. I cannot wait for the world to hear what these poets have to sayKelly Baloyi
