IDSC publishes infographic on Egypt’s efforts to eliminate violence against women

The Cabinet’s Information and Decision Support Center (IDSC) has published an infographic in conjunction with the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, which is commemorated on November 25.

The official UN commemoration of the day is held this year under the global umbrella theme of the 2022 UNiTE Campaign: “UNiTE! Activism to End Violence against Women & Girls”.

The infographic indicated that 85% of women around the world have been exposed to digital violence and abuse via the internet.

It tackled Egypt’s most prominent efforts to protect women against violence and discrimination, including the establishment of 27 anti-sexual harassment units at public universities, in addition to eight medical response units at a number of university hospitals to deal with women who have been subjected to violence.

The infographic also pointed out to the launch of a national plan to eliminate female genital mutilation (2022-2026).
