Dear Friends,

The 21^st annual 16 Days Campaign will be kicking off in just a few 
weeks, and here at the Center for Women's Global Leadership, we are 
incredibly excited by the plans underway across the globe to make this 
year's campaign a wonderful success!You can see that we already have 
events posted from around the world on the Campaign Calendar 
<>, but we need your help 
to fill the calendar. Submitting an event to the calendar is a great way 
to spread the word about your work and be recognized as a participating 
organization! Tell us how you're going to be part of the movement - 
whether it's holding a vigil, writing a blog or news article, hosting a 
radio show, screening a film, campaigning on the street, holding 
awareness-raising programs, or talking to friends about the issue... 
every action contributes toward making the world a safer place for women 
and girls!


*What Does "Security" Mean To You?*

  Often when we hear about security, it is in terms of the State: 
military, police, private armies or other "security sector" agents. Do 
these armed forces really make us feel safer? How does violence in our 
community or home affect our overall security as women? What does human 
security mean to you? Leading up to this year's 16 Days Campaign, "From 
Peace in the Home to Peace in the World," we are trying to define what 
security means to all of us. Join us in redefining security from the 
ground up! Submit your thoughts or create a 30-second YouTube video and 
send us the link. CWGL will be sharing your ideas and testimonies on the 
16 Days website. Your submissions will help guide our advocacy on state 
spending priorities.

*_Online Campaign Calendar_*

To help spread the word about 16 Day Campaign activities happening 
around the world, you can submit your plans to our online Campaign 
Calendar. We ask that you submit just _one entry_ that lists _all_ of 
your plans during the campaign, rather than submitting a separate event 
form for each activity. You can also upload several documents that 
explain your events. The calendar is searchable by region and country. 
Submit your information today and spread the word!!
