“Say No to Violence” workshop on monitoring and documenting violations of women’s rights

21-11-2013

The UN Media Centre organized in collaboration with “Say No to Violence” a training workshop on monitoring violations of women’s rights and documenting these on video.  The workshop which was organized at the STEPS learning centre in Saida and was attended by 22 activists, is part of a series of such events which are due to be organized in different parts of Lebanon in commemoration of the international day to combat violence against women and which is celebrated by the United Nations on November 25 of every year.
Theses workshops seek to support the campaign launched in 2008 by the UN Secretary General and entitled “Unite to End Violence Against Women”, whilst aiming to build the capacities and skills of participants in challenging violence against women in Lebanon as well as monitor it and minimize it.  The workshops also will contribute to strengthening the “Sexual Harassment Watch” monitoring site, and which is affiliated to Say No to Violence through providing it with documented cases of sexual harassment and other forms of violence against women.
