KERRY Rape & Sexual Abuse Centre and ADAPT Kerry Women’s Refuge and Support Service have joined forces with the National Collective of Community Based Women’s Networks in south Kerry to highlight the 16 Days of Action for the elimination of violence against women and children.

The 16 Days of Action Campaign is an opportunity to raise awareness and call for changes at an international, national and local level to make women and children safe from abuse.

The campaign runs from November 25 (UN Day For the Elimination of Violence against Women) to December 10 (International Human Rights Day).

#ShareOneThing is an innovative Social Media Campaign developed in Kerry and is running during this timeframe.  This campaign asks the public to support victims of domestic and sexual violence by sharing posts, posters and information over the 16 Days of Action.

Catherine Casey (Manager Adapt Kerry Women’s Refuge) and Vera O’Leary (Manager Kerry Rape & Sexual Abuse Centre), who have over 25 years experiences of working with and supporting victims of domestic and sexual abuse, believe that raising awareness of the issues facing victims and supporters is vital to tackling violence against women and children.

Communities, agencies and individuals can respond and assist victims by supporting this campaign and circulating information on the services here locally. You can support the campaign by following KRSAC and ADAPT Kerry on social media and sharing their daily messages during the 16 days.
