Doctor Who filmed in the USA for the first time in the middle of the Utah desert, quite different from many of the other settings the series has seen over the years. Matt Smith, the 11th Doctor said, “The landscape was incredible, and I think being in America, filming in that terrain, has definitely added a sense of scale and a filmic quality to this season. It was an amazing experience.”
16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence
Millions of women, children and men have suffered sexual violence in conflicts of our lifetimes, in a climate of almost complete impunity, with only a handful of successful prosecutions ever taking place. This month, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and our posts around the world are adding their voice to the 16 Days of Activism campaign to highlight this issue.
The annual 16 Days of Activism campaign begins on International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (25 November) and ends on International Human Rights Day (10 December).
We will be marking the 16 days on this blog by looking at the work the UK Government and others are doing to build on the G8 Declaration on Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict, and the UN Declaration of Commitment to End Sexual Violence in Conflict, and by highlighting practical action being taken to help bring justice to survivors.
You can follow our updates during the 16 days here, and @FCOHumanRights on Twitter. You can read more about the 16 Days of Gender Activism campaign here.
