Despite the declarations and conventions created to prevent human rights violations and further protect women and girls, such as: The Universal Declaration of Human Rights; The Declaration on the Elimination of Violence Against Women; and, the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), women all over the world still suffer from all kinds of abuses while the perpetrators go unpunished. As part of Oxfam’s webinar series, the next webinar will focus on the issue of Violence against Women and Girls, with an emphasis on 'Public influencing to end violence against women and girls: Best practices and ways forward'.
The discussion will gather three experts with different experiences and backgrounds who will share the main learning of their influencing work and practical examples:
