It's time to #LeveltheLaw. Join us for #16Days of activism against gender-based violence, November 25-December 10, 2016.

As a #LeveltheLaw champion, support the #16Days of activism against gender-based violence bycalling for a stop to harmful practices that hold girls and women back.

Roughly 90% of all countries have at least one legal difference between women and men limiting women’s opportunities. These include laws that condone child marriage, marital rape, honor killings and female genital mutilation. In some instances, countries lack the legislative and regulatory frameworks to protect women from violence.
