Eliminate gender-based violence – our collective responsibility
16 Days of Activism Webinar | Tuesday, 7 December 2021 | 09:00-10:30 CAT
In our ongoing drive for accountability, the SVAI aims to engage business leadership and solicit support in the ongoing fight against gender-based violence (GBV) and, in particular, violence against women and the gender-related killing of women (femicide).
As part of the United Nations’ 16 Days of Activism Campaign for No Violence against Women and Children (25.11 to 10.12), the SVAI will be hosting its own call-to-action GBVF webinar on Tuesday, 7 December. The webinar will bring like-minded organisations together, focusing on our collective responsibility to eliminate gender-based violence.
Sharing the virtual platform with the SVAI will be representatives from the GBV-NSP collaborative and #ITSNOTOK campaign partners: Provantage, Kaya FM, Ask Africa, Work Force Health Care, CIPC and Gautrain. Panellists will highlight their own initiatives and efforts in the fight against GBVF and, as a collective, identify the three most important actions/changes that will help move the dial on eliminating GBVF.
In putting the spotlight on the prevention and elimination of violence against women and girls, the SVAI is answering the call for global actions to increase awareness, galvanise advocacy efforts, and share knowledge and innovations.
As the SVAI, we also call on individuals and business to pledge support for the #ITSNOTOK movement. Be silent no more! Be bold. Be vocal. Be visible. Pledge YOUR support in the fight against Gender Based Violence at www.itsnotok.africa
Let’s continue our efforts all year round from 16 to 365 days of activism, to advance the human rights of women. A world without violence is possible and this moment demands unparalleled courage and joint action to make this vision a reality.
GBVF #ITSNOTOK 365 days of the year!
