In recognition of the Official 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence Campaign, Women Win have put together a video that connects sport and empowerment as a means for women and girls to overcome violence.

Violence against women is everywhere. So is sport - building muscles of resilience and confidence in girls and women. A few brave women from the Middle East share their stories.

Beginning on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (25 November) and concluding on International Human Rights Day (10 December), the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence Campaign emphasises that gender-based violence is a human rights violation.

The theme, “From Peace in the Home to Peace in the World: Let’s Challenge Militarism and End Violence Against Women!” underlines diverse challenges and contributors to gender-based violence and the effects of militarism, economic and social rights violations, sexual orientation and gender identity, disability, health, and political rights on our intersectional identities and experiences.
