Today is the final day of the 16 days of activism for the elimination of violence against women and girls. 
Today is also International Human Rights Day – because women’s rights are human rights, and human rights are women’s rights. 
On Day 16, as a student or staff member at UCLan we ask for your solidarity – today and every other day of the year. 
The 16 days of action has marked many anniversaries where violence towards women and girls has ended in tragedy, here are two that really led the way for change and activism: 

Remember that UCLan has a confidential wellbeing service where you can speak with wellbeing advisors, mental health advisors or counsellors. If you need support please don not hesitate to get in touch here: Counselling, Mental Health and Wellbeing Advice UCLan 


If you or someone else is in immediate danger, please call 999 and ask for the police. Silent calls will work if you are not safe to speak – use the Silent Solution system and call 999 and then press 55 when prompted. If you can’t use a voice phone, you can register with the police text service - text REGISTER to 999.  You will get a text which tells you what to do next.  Do this when it is safe so you can text when you are in danger.
