UNFPA Launches Campaign to Combat Violence Against Women

 The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) in Tunisia has launched a campaign to combat violence against women and girls, in cooperation with the Centre for Research, Studies, Documentation and Information on Women (CREDIF) from October 20 to 27, it said in a statement Thursday.

The campaign is supported by the Japanese government under the programme “Enhancing the Social Protection System for Vulnerable and Marginalised Populations due to COVID-19.”

It aims to reduce violence against women and girls, to break gender-role stereotypes and the social representation of gender, and to denounce gender-based violence.

This campaign is based on three components, the first of which provides for presenting 3 testimonies of men who believe in gender equality and who talk about ordinary forms of violence inflicted on women and girls, particularly in the private sphere and in the sports and school environment.

These 3 testimonies will be posted by the CREDIF, while urban posters will be put up on buses in the Greater Tunis area.
