Tackling violence against women and girls is an urgent priority in our society and the world. In commemoration of #OrangeTheWorld: International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, “The Conversation” in partnership with “TalkShop” is touring 16 secondary schools in Lagos State to educate girls on “How to Bully-Proof Yourself”; their rights as young women and also to say “NO” to violence against women and girls worldwide.
The conveners of this movement are Editor, writer and feminist Joy Isi Bewaji and Adesola Arit Alamutu.
#16DaysOfActivism against gender discrimination started worldwide on Wednesday, 25th November and runs through to Thursday, 10th December. All you need to do to support this movement is wear a piece of orange.
The event is sponsored by Nasco. Media Partner: Happenings Magazine.
