#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).
A key goal of this year’s Global 16 Days Campaign is to influence a wave of ratifications for C190, which is an important first step towards the implementation of these standards at the national level. Here’s a brand new advocacy guide that has been developed specifically to support your efforts. The 2019 Global 16 Days Campaign Advocacy Guide explains why this campaign is needed and recommends specific actions that can be taken from November 25-December 10, 2019, to amplify the call for ratification and implementation of C190 and R206.
We believe that supporting and amplifying the leadership and diverse realities of women at the grassroots level worldwide will best ensure these instruments are implemented in a way that will lead to a world of work free from violence for all women, regardless of identity or circumstance, and across all spheres of work, whether paid or unpaid, formal or informal.
As a result of the actions taken by the 16 Days Campaign community, there will be unprecedented public awareness of the new ILO instruments C190 and R206, and a demand for ratification and implementation with a gendered approach.
These measures must be followed by steps for accountability all year round until we reach the initial goal of 50 ratifications by 2025.
Let’s get started!
