Activists around the world took the social media to say, in several languages: "Stop Violence against women and girls!"

The IPPF #StopViolence campaign, to mark the 16 days of activism against gender-based violence, was launched by IPPF Champion Jessica Pratt and Yvonne Chaka Chaka.

For 16 days, women and men shared the aspect of violence against women that affects or hurts them the most, always with a clear message: we're sick of it
