They say no to violence against women! This year, UN Women Maghreb launches, on November 23 in Marrakech, the global campaign “16 days of combating violence against women and girls” under the theme of ” Positive Masculinities: Men and Boys reject violence against women and girls “.
A campaign organized since 2008 on the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Essentially conducted under the official hashtag #Hit_Ana_Rajel , this edition aims to raise awareness among the general public about the positive roles of men and boys in promoting gender equality as well as preventing violence against women and girls, as explained by the UN antenna in a statement.
Thus, engaged artists like Fnair, Anis Chouchene, Moustapha Romli, Souad Sahel, Kabaret Cheikhats, Faisal Azizi or Taoufiq Izeddiou will express their rejection of violence through their art, be it music, slam, dance or the visual arts.
Throughout these 16 days, a series of actions are expected to draw attention to this scourge. Among the events on the agenda, the operation “Oranger le Monde”. Specifically, in Morocco, the General Directorate of National Security, the Mohammed VI Museum, the Maroc Telecom Tower, the Rabat-Agdal LGV station, and Autoroutes du Maroc, among others, will light up in orange, to mark their commitment for the urgent elimination of violence against women and girls.
