International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women,” 16th day activism”

7 December 2016

On the 25 November, ERGO’s Network member from Bosnia-Herzegovina  OTHARIN started its  so-called '16-days-activism' campaign is run   together with the 'UG Romkinja' (Roma women) and the 'Local Voluntary Service' in Bijeljina.

The first part of that program took place on the 25.11.2016, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on the city square in Bijeljina.

The participants of the street action wrote messages concerning the topic of violence against women and asked citizens who passed by to do the same in order to provide support.

T-Shirts were donated in order to show gratitude to those who left their supportive messages. Unfortunately violence against women is increasing again, which makes it even more important to raise public awareness on that topic.
