Description of the project:
The aim of the Voice Against Violence project is to implement an awareness campaign including advocacy activities in order to prevent and combat undesirable stereotypes and causes of gender-based violence. As part of the 20-month project, we will implement a Voice Against Violence awareness and advocacy campaign to raise public and political awareness of violence against women and the Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence (Istanbul Convention). We will achieve this through a nationwide social media campaign (indirect reach 500,000), public debates and workshops in the regions (850 people), cooperation with supporters (150), and advocacy work (addressing 281 politicians/people). The project will help women as the most frequent victims of gender-based violence and raise awareness of the problem of violence against women within our society.
