Myanmar SCM observes 16 Days
of Activism against Gender Violence

"To End Men’s Violence against Women and Children"

November 25, 2010

Myanmar SCM observed the “16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence” on the theme “To End Men’s Violence against Women and Children".

Held on 25 November 2010 in Yangon, around 400 participants attended the forum that discussed the reality of gender violence and how women continue to suffer from it until present time.

The forum was organized by Myanmar SCM in collaboration with the Thingaha Gender Working Group, NGO Gender Group, Buddhist Youth Program, Myanmar Institute of Theology, Association of Theological Education in Myanmar and Myanmar Council of Churches.

Through the forum, many women were able to place themselves in today’s society and reflected on how they can address the issue of violence against women despite their young age.

The forum was indeed a meaningful experience for all those who attended.
