The Make your voice heard project against GBV arrive to Khemisset city

20 young women from Khemisset city and its surroundings in a training on combating violence against women (VAW). The training is part of the project “Make your voice heard” which implemented by the Youth Empowerment Society - YES and funded by the Euro-Mediterranean Foundation of Support to Human Rights Defenders.

It is the 5th of a series of trainings that was held in Teft, Rabat, Kenitra and Tangier.

Facilitated by Lawyer Fatiha Chtatou, president of the Network Injad against VAW, the training focused on the law 103/13 on Gender-Based Violence which recently went into force and its implications on women’s protection and rights.  

The training also featured numerous advocacy activities and pilot initiatives in Morocco and abroad to defend women’s rights. Participants were also trained on international mechanisms and national legislations to protect women’s rights (e.g. Family Code, 2011 Constitution, National Plan of Action on Democracy and Human Rights, and the Five-Step Strategy for Effective Advocacy, and others).

A workshop on the use of technology (podcasts and videos) to advocate women’s issues and produce audiovisual content on women’s issues was also implemented.

The training was carried out in partnership with the Center for the Protection of Women Victims of Violence of the Association of Young Lawyers in Khemisset.

This project aims to contribute to the mitigation and the fight against gender-based violence through campaigns disseminating the culture of protection and respect for women, awareness raising activities encouraging girls to speak about violence and harassment, reported them and act against them whether they are victims or know one of its victims. The project also consist in presenting storytelling techniques as a tool to counter VAW.

The project also aims to draw the attention of the community and mobilize public opinion towards these issues, as well as to promote the use of social media to reduce violence against women in Morocco.

Other trainings are scheduled around mid-December in the city of Tetouan.
