This annual two weeks of activism, as a lot of you will know, was started more than twenty years ago by the Centre for Women's Global Leadership (CWGL) at Rutgers University. This year the theme is ‘From peace in the home to peace in the world: let's challenge militarism and end gender-based violence’. They've called on us to foster what they call ‘a strategic conversation’ on the links between militarism and male violence against women.
