Main activities related to gender equality and women's rights

The Moroccan Youth Association for Development recently organized an initiative against impunity for the perpetrators of gender-based violence in the university sphere, as part of a competition for the best initiatives against impunity for perpetrators of violence run by the Tunisia-based Center of Arab Women for Training and Research CAWTAR. The initiative was carried out in Beni Mellal, Morocco in 2020 and specifically targeted female students in the city’s Faculty of Arts and Human Sciences. A number of activities were organized, the most important being:
An awareness-raising campaign involving the production of leaflets and promotional material about the issue; distribution of the leaflets directly, in field activities in university spaces ; raising students’ awareness; and communicating with them about the importance of reporting any cases of violence in the university and not remaining silent;
Students also organized a theatre production dealing with the issue of violence.
