Please join us for the 16 Days of Activism to End Violence Against Women
November 25- December 10
No Human Rights Without Women’s Right
Join us and meet survivors, heroes and truth telling leaders Darfur Women Action Group is launching 16 days of activism to end violence against women in the support of a worldwide campaign. During this period DWAG will launch a campaign highlighting the unspeakable suffering and the resilience of the women of Darfur in the face of brutal rape and other forms of sexual violence. We stand in solidarity with survivors by educating people about the ongoing violence against women in Darfur and Sudan at large. We invite those who share our concerns about women’s issues to join our effort and take action that will help empower women, end their suffering and violence permanently. Starting on November 25 through December 10, International Human Rights Day, we will be featuring powerful stories of female survivors from Darfur and other conflict zones, reflecting on both the suffering and the resilience of these brave women in the face of genocide. Their stories will also highlight women’s ability to become leaders despite being the most affected and least involved by the international actors working to end the crises. We will also be featuring “Our Heroes,” the men who have stepped up to defend the rights of women by fighting gender based violence and working side-by-side with women to advance their rights and advocate for greater gender balance in our society. DWAG believes that in order to end violence against women, we must focus on building responsible partnerships between men and women to ensure that women’s empowerment and their participation in decision making is a priority for all.
