 In Lebanon, the theme focused on taking violence against women from silent and suppressed spheres into the heart of the public sphere of State accountability, in order to mobilise public opinion, actors at the State level, and women’s human rights stakeholders.

 “Through Violence… Nobody comes out ahead. The ultimate responsibility is putting an end to violence against women.”

This declaration was made by His Excellency Former Lebanese President General Michel Sleiman, who carried the message to the public in his capacity as Lebanon’s most recent President (prior to the current gap), and therefore as a representation of the position of Presidency.

The campaign thus aimed to foster the Lebanese political will through highlighting the State’s exercising of due diligence.

The campaign was also designed to elicit a proactive response from the State and the general population alike, by raising awareness on the prevalence of gender-based violence (GBV) in Lebanon, as well as on the need to take action to protect survivors of GBV while simultaneously working on the rehabilitation of perpetrators of GBV.

Program Ra

It stems from our belief in the vital role  of men and young boys in preventing violence against women and girls and the necessity for them to be actively involved in issues of sexual and re-productive health and rights and to focus on how sexual and reproductive health and rights inter-sect with gender and women’s rights. Gender inequality is not only the main vulnerability fac-tor related to sexual and reproductive health and rights for women and girls, but gender norms also influence decision making and thus limit the ability to access sexual and reproductive health and rights.
