Last month we launched the first of 5 actions to End Violence Against Women — Our Story. The stories shared by our community through the “Our Story” campaign were a stark reminder that women’s experiences of violence are not isolated.
This week Women’s March Global released our second of 5 actions to EndVAW (Violence Against Women). In partnership with Equality Now, Women’s March Global has launched a mini-course called “The Law and Sexual Violence”. Through the course, we hope to educate and raise awareness of the efforts to reform sexual violence laws globally, recent successes in this area and advocate for the immense amount of work that must still be done.
Equality Now will join Women’s March Global to host a month-long online mini-course on sexual violence laws worldwide; featuring talks by Equality Now’s extensive network of experts and advocates about movements driving changes in the law and demanding access to justice for survivors.
These courses will be conducted online, every Wednesday, on Women’s March Global’s Facebook page, for the month of March.
Course attendees will receive special weekly emails with course summaries and have access to resources and notes related to the course. See below for the complete schedule.
