In line with the efforts of the Palestinian Working Woman Society for Development and the Palestinian women movement in previous years to promote the right of women and girls to live in health, safety and security, PWWSD continues its work alongside other human rights and feminist institutions and coalitions through its 16 Days of Activism Campaign against GBV, with a special focus on increased social and legal protection for women and girls. This year’s campaign will build on the recently launched of the “Sada” Campaign (ECHO), which was launched during the month of August mainly to promote the passage of the Family Protection from violence bill into law.
The 16 Days campaign aims to:
- Ensure women's right to social and legal protection from violence
- Pressuring decision-makers to set clear, specific, and time-bound commitments related to the approval of the Family Protection from violence Law.
