    Gender-based violence is a tragic reality across the world. It is often hidden because victims fear further violence and stigmatisation. This campaign, originally provoked by the World Council of Churches (WCC) Decade of Churches in Solidarity with Women, aims to give voice to the demand that women and men, boys and girls, should be safe from rape and violence in homes, schools, work places, and on the streets; indeed, in all places. The action required is simple but profound: Wear black on Thursdays. Show your respect for women who are resilient in the face of injustice and violence and encourage others to join you. Black has been used with negative racial connotations, this campaign challenges that by using black as a colour of resistance and resilience. The campaign was inspired by: • The Mothers of the Disappeared in Buenos Aires, Argentina who on protested at the Plaza de Mayo, against the disappearance of their children during the violent dictatorship • The Women in Black in Israel and Palestine, who protest against war and violence • Women in Rwanda and Bosnia who were protesting against the use of rape as a weapon of war during the genocide • The Black Sash movement in South Africa protesting against apartheid and its use of violence against black people Pray for an end to gender-based violence everywhere More information at www.oikoumene.org/en/get-involved/thursdays-in-black and on which this page is based.
