Mashreq conducts a campaign against all forms of GBV in the Arab World

Mashreq Foundation for Development launched a regional awareness campaign entitled “Tamkeen” in cooperation with Al-Mahrousa Center (PDS) and the Kuwait Human Rights Society which aims to educate Arab women about their rights in local laws and international conventions, as well as to combat all forms of Gender-Based Violence (GBV).

 The campaign comes in solidarity with women all around the world and in line with the international campaign “16 Days Activism” to protest against violence and exploitation, and to claim and defend women’s rights.

The campaign consists in:

  • Promoting 30 infographics on the rights of women in the legislations and laws of Arab countries through social media and regional media outlets (some examples are attached below)
  • Workshops and meetings focused on the discussion of women’s rights and the introduction of a critical vision of the laws that need to be amend.
  • Various activities in public parks in Cairo (Egypt) as part of the Mashreq’s work to provide psycho-social support to women exposed to violence at various levels and sectors (health sector, industrial sector, educational sector, etc.). These activities are also meant as a tool to break the silence about GBV.
  • Highlights Arab women who are considered as inspiring models in various fields (politics, economy and culture).  
  • The publication and distribution of 2 videos on the rights of Egyptian women in the workplace and the creation of a non-violent environment, produced through the Mashreq Foundation during the last year 2017 within the project of ‘’ Safe working environment for women.

All the details of this campaign are available on Mashreq Foundation’s Facebook page in the link below.
