“Say No to Violence” launches its Campaign entitled “Have you seen harassment?”

17-08-2013

“Say No to Violence” launched its Campaign entitled “Have you seen harassment?” within the framework of its efforts to challenge the present trend of sexual harassment on the streets and areas across Lebanon.  The Campaign calls on the Lebanese government to criminalize sexual harassment and penalize violence against women.  The organization addressed a formal letter to the Ministry of Interior and Municipalities asking the Minister to support the organization and extend its efforts to secure safety, prevent crimes, especially heinous crimes against women and girls, and combat sexual harassment.  The organization also addressed women and girls of Lebanon calling on them not to allow anyone to violate their rights, continue to struggle for a society free from violence and marginalization, to confront harassers and inform law enforcers. Finally, it is to be noted that the organization had set up an observatory, as in Egypt and Tunisia, and is coordinating with the Lebanese authorities in limiting sexual harassment in public places and at work, has also trained volunteers to monitor sexual harassment and human rights violations, and also set up a hotline to inform of cases of sexual harassment across Lebanon.
