Caraga Regional Development Council - Gender and Development Coordinating Committee (RDC-GADCC) Meeting

Gender and Development Coordinating Committee (GADCC) chair and Commission on Human Rights (CHR) Caraga regional director Atty. Marylin Pintor recalls that the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence is an international campaign originating from the first Women's Global Leadership Institute sponsored by the Center for Women's Global Leadership (CWGL) at Rutgers University in 1991. Participants chose the dates, November 25, International Day Against Violence Against Women, and December 10, International Human Rights Day, in order to symbolically link violence against women and human rights and to emphasize that such violence is a human rights violation.
