[October – November 06] International Day Against Gender Based Violence:
The Group is currently collaborating with UNIFEM to launch a university-wide campaign to raise awareness about gender-based violence. This campaign will highlight the general forms of gender-based violence through a forum and a film screening in early November, and will be held in conjunction with UNIFEM’s public awareness campaign that culminates in the International Day Against Gender-based Violence (25th November).
