  Consultation on 2007 16 Days Campaign Theme: Demanding Implementation, Challenging Obstacles
  As activists working to prevent violence against women, we all face obstacles and challenges to our work. These obstacles may include a lack of implementation of gender-sensitive policies, resource constraints or even backlash from our communities. As a movement, it is important to identify what challenges we face and how to overcome them in order to move forward effectively and collectively in our efforts.  The 16 Days campaign is one vehicle that we can use to speak out, challenge obstacles and make our demands known!

  This year's campaign will seek to demand implementation by challenging those obstacles that stand in the way of realizing an environment where women are free from violence- including those obstacles that we as activists face when trying to move forward in our work. Like previous years, this campaign also seeks to recognize the widespread efforts being undertaken on the issue of violence, especially in the areas of implementation and prevention work.

  As we begin the consultation for the 16 Days campaign theme, CWGL invites you to share what you feel are the most important challenges and obstacles that hinder you/your organization from being able to effectively move forward in your work on preventing violence against women.  Please share with us any resource materials or fact sheets you have put together on this issue and help us decide our campaign slogan by sending us your ideas, suggestions and comments.  See slogans below for examples from previous years.

  As we are eager to begin preparations for the campaign we request that you send us your feedback by Friday, June 22nd.

  Many thanks,
