#RatifyILO190 is a central demand of this year’s Global 16 Days Campaign that aims to mobilize women, across movements, to collectively take action in advancing the ratification and implementation of the newly adopted ILO instruments: Violence and Harassment Convention, 2019 (C190) and Violence and Harassment Recommendation, 2019 (R206).
