Say the phrase: gender-based violence (GBV), and people usually think of domestic and sexual violence against women and LGBTQ+ people.
But gender and violence come together in many forms.
This 16 Days Of Activism Against GBV, join us as we spotlight the violence faced by women activists defending their ancestral lands and ways of life – the violence of extractivism.
Our 6-part digital series called ‘Extractivism is Violence!’ will unpack extractive development, take you behind the scenes to see what drives it, and showcase how women are fighting back and promoting alternatives to sustain the planet.
