An official closing ceremony of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence and an exhibition on gender discrimination will be held at the National Parliamentary Library of Georgia today at 16:00.
The event will be hosted by UNFPA/Georgia.
The 16 Days of Activism campaign was launched Nov. 25. The aim of the project was to eliminate violence against women and raise public awareness around issues of women’s rights.
“Those 16 days we had active cooperation between the government, international organizations and NGOs, and we really hope that results of the efforts we will fell also in future after those 16 days,” UNFPA Advocacy and Communications Specialist Tamar Vashakidze told Georgia Today.
The campaign was held under the UNFPA project "Combating Gender-Based Violence in the South Caucasus," with the support of the Advisory Council on Gender Equality under the Chair of Parliament in collaboration with governmental, international and non-governmental organizations and the French Embassy in Georgia.
