Campaigning towards a safer environment for women in Egypt

Published

on

16 days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is a campaign that launches every year on the international Day the Elimination of Violence against Women, it’s a time for countries to show participation and take action towards creating a safer environment for all girls and women. 

The time has changed for women, and those who once feared to speak up no longer hide behind shame, with campaigns encouraging them to speak up and end the stigma that once allowed violence to spread. 

With campaigns such as #MeToo, #TimesUp, #Niunamenos, #NotOneMore, #BalanceTonPorc, activists and survivors gained a platform where they can no longer be silenced up. 

And in the light of the campaign, the National Council for Women held a meeting on Friday to discuss the issue and how to put an end to it or at least limit it. Representatives from 18 universities attended the meeting along with officials from the Ministry of Higher Education.

Sanna Sayed, Supervisor of the General Directorate of Human Rights Affairs, explained that the meeting aims to be part of the national strategy to limit violence against women, the strategy was launched back in 2015 and hopes to improve the conditions for women by the year 2030.

The meeting had shed the light on the false traditions and customs that are wrongly attained generation after generation, and that such mistaken ideas should be put to an end, either through awareness or legislatively. 

The idea of using legislative efforts to eliminate violence was tackled today, as well as discussing the many forms of violence and the hostile environment that women suffer from in all governorates. 

A number of proposals were set by the end of the meeting, which included having consecutive meeting in order to unite all efforts and discuss possible solutions or strategies that were successfully implemented before. In addition to continuing the procedure that is done with the Egyptian universities and finally setting a plan to be effectively executed annually for activities to be reviewed. I bet all the feminists reading this article are eager to see actual implementations and correct ways in executing such a plan. Because an issue like this is a huge one that need to be tackled carefully, but we’re glad to see action being taken to end the violence that women face every day around the world and not just in Egypt. And we also hope to see organization taking action and showing participation and support for the cause.
