The College is hosting a number of events to help mark this year's 16 days of Activism campaign to end gender-based violence.

Students across the College are invited to take part in events this November and December to show support for the campaign and learn more about the issues faced by people who have been affected by gender-based violence.

16 Days of Activism is an annual international campaign which starts on the 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and runs until 10 December, Human Rights Day.
