The federal government is shining a spotlight on human trafficking and campus safety for female students in announcing its support for an international campaign to help end violence against women.
The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence is a worldwide campaign spanning 4,100 organizations in 172 countries that aims to raise awareness about the multiple forms of violence women face.
Status of Women Minister Rona Ambrose said the government’s support for the campaign is part of its recent $25-million National Action Plan to Combat Trafficking in Persons, a comprehensive blueprint to curb human trafficking . . .
