With the webinar “Women’s Voices for a Future without Violence”, KAICIID marks the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, by joining the first day of UN UNiTE's #16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence, “Orange the World” Campaign. This year’s theme is “UNiTE! ACTIVISM TO END VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN & GIRLS!”. It aims to mobilise all members of society to become activists for the prevention of violence against women; to stand in solidarity with women’s rights activists; to support feminist movements around the world to resist the rollback on women’s rights; and to call for a world free from Violence against Women & Girls.
This webinar will demonstrate that violence against women and girls is preventable. The all-female panel of speakers will share their personal stories and experiences. They will show how greater investment in proven solutions and the involvement of interfaith communities and its leaders who share a commitment to gender equality, women’s empowerment and the well-being of women and girls, amplify successes.
This year, addressing crosscutting themes of Women’s Rights and Gender Equality, KAICIID has been running a four-part series of webinars called “Women’s Voices”. This session is the fourth and final in the series. An article was published in September around the series, announcing its third (Women’s Voices as a Key to Peace) and this, the fourth, webinars.
