Sustaining Our CVAW Activism in the Face of Rising Threats


In 2014 WELDD delivered three tailor-made regional workshops to frontline CVAW activists in the Middle East, Asia, and Africa, incorporating self-care and integrated security techniques into strategies for resistance. Taking place in June, August, and September in Beirut (Lebanon), Jakarta (Indonesia), and Dakar (Senegal) respectively, the workshops proved to be a resounding success. Participants praised being introduced to new concepts of culture and gendered violence, and learnt self-care and leadership techniques to take forward in their work.
