Jerusalem24 – “16 Days of Activism Against Violence against Women” is an international campaign first launched by the Institute for Women’s Global Leadership in coordination with the Center for Women’s Global Leadership in 1991. The participants chose the dates between November 25, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and December 10, Human Rights Day, in order to symbolically link issues of violence against women and human rights and to emphasize that this type of violence constitutes a violation of human rights.
In this episode of VIBES Randa Siniora Palestinian feminist and human rights activist, and director of the Women’s Center for Legal Aid and Consultation spoke to Mona Hijjawi about the campaign this year and how it focuses on the violations against Freedom of speech and the Israeli occupation’s Violations against Palestinian women as well.
Randa tackled all kinds of violations and violence against Women and updated us on the process of passing the Family Protection Law and the challenges they are facing till the very moment.
In addition to that she explained the ways we can help if we find indicators of violence and sent a message through VIBES to all women who are subjected to any kind of violence or even harassment at work, to directly contact concerned institutions before things exacerbate.
We also discussed the Covid-19 repercussions on women in terms of the increased rate of violence in 2020 and the huge number of victims during 2021 too.
