Deyman Waata! ABAAD campaign for 16 Days of Activism to end violence against women and girls 2021
The country’s crises are many. But our protection can’t be postponed any longer! one out of two women in Lebanon considers that women’s protection should be a priority during the ongoing crisis that the country is witnessing, whereas 96% of young girls and women residing in Lebanon who have experienced domestic violence in 2021 stated that they had never reported it.
“While we fully understand that the current reality in Lebanon is difficult for everyone, and that the multiple crises afflicting the country are a burden on all citizens without exception, this does not mean that the protection of women can become a lesser priority, at a time when all statistics, studies and surveys that we are conducting with women, girls and right-holders indicate a dramatic increase in the rates of violence in all its forms.” Ghida Anani, Director of Abaad #دايما_وقتها
On the occasion of the global 16 Days of Activism campaign to end violence against women and girls, ABAAD is launching its national campaign under the banner “Deyman Waata” دايما_وقتها#

Dayman Waata Campaign Launch
On the occasion of the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence 2021, ABAAD, in partnership with a number of partners and allies, has launched the “#prioretytoo” nationwide campaign.
A national survey conducted by ABAAD has highlighted the priorities of young women and girls and the challenges they face in light of the current reality in Lebanon. 3 out of 5 women reported that economic challenges are the most prominent struggle they are facing at the present time, while 2 out of 5 women who took the survey affirmed that they refrained from reporting violence out of fear of the perpetrator’s reaction.
