We understand gender violence as… any form of violence – physical, sexual, verbal, economic, emotional, psychological - that is directed at an individual because of her/his gender. Violence against women is the most pervasive form of gender-based violence.
In the five editions of the 16 Days Campaign against Gender Violence, we’ve seen for ourselves the need for a concerted, sustained programme on gender violence, one that extends beyond advocacy and activism.
We’ve witnessed a growing community interest and involvement in this effort and interacted with an increasing number of people with whom this issue has resonance.
We often complain that gender violence is brushed under the carpet or cloaked in secrecy - maybe, if we create the platform, there are people who will talk about it?
