As part of the campaign, UN Women Türkiye also invited visitors to take a 10-question intimate partner violence quiz on its Instagram account. As of 8 December, around 41,000 users had taken the quiz.
The aim of the campaign, which runs throughout the 16 Days of Activism, is to raise public awareness on the manifestations and consequences of intimate partner violence against women and girls, as well as how to identify it and take action.
The campaign was kicked off through a launch event in downtown Istanbul, moderated by Evgar, where she said: “It is very difficult to achieve gender equality without ending violence completely. Everyone should take action against violence against women.”
Financed by the European Union, with contributions from the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality, the event brought together civil society, the women’s movement, the private sector, public authorities, youth, and activists.
“We can all be advocates and our voices combined can drive the change we seek,” said Asya Varbanova, UN Women Türkiye Country Director, at the launch event. “Together we are stronger against violence and inequalities. Let us walk together to achieve the world we want to live in.”
At the event representatives from civil society organizations, and youth took the stage to say “No” to violence and expressed their manifests against intimate partner violence. After the speeches, participants painted #SheSaidNo stencils.
