16 Days Campaign against VAWG

Posted November 26, 2021 from Nigeria

I remember, with so much nostalgia.

The poem that won the writer's award of the 16 Days activism against VAWG of 2019; I STAND WITH HER.

It was pretty much one of those pieces written on a whim, without much thought or grandiosity. 

They were words that flowed from the deep recess of my heart straight unto the keyboard without any barriers.

That single win is the key that unlocked to door to many blockages.

For this and several other things, I remain grateful to world pulse and everyone on it.

For this year, we are doing something different. Gathering endorsements for the campaign and creating a feature article on it at the end of the 16 days.

To participate, kindly read the article on the website https://sheroes.ng/news/2021/11/26/days-activism/ and create your own campaign picture.

Then post on all your social media handles, and tag sheroes.ng, WorldPulse, UNWomen, and OrangeTheWorld stating your commitment to the fight against VAWG.

Join the campaign. Together we can end this scourage. Together, we can create a gender-equal and violent free world.

YES, we can.
