The BA Launches the 16-Day Campaign to Combat Violence against Women

The BA Women Studies and Social Transformation Program (WSST), and the Children and Young People’s Libraries – in cooperation with the National Council for Women, the UNHCR, CARE Egypt Foundation, and Caritas-Egypt – are organizing a 16-day campaign to combat violence against women, under the slogan “Together We Protect Her.” The event starts on Sunday, 27 November 2022, in the BACC Small Theater.

The event’s program includes panel discussions, theatrical performances, and film screenings.

This event comes within the framework of the activities of the 16-day campaign to fight violence against women, and based on the mission which the BA aspires to achieve in various societal fields, in order to improve women’s conditions and raise public awareness about their issues. The BA also believes that the status of women in any society represents the outcome of an interaction between cultural, social, economic, and political factors that are intertwined in a complex way, and that the stability and progress of countries can only be achieved through the active participation of women in the public sphere.
