“A gender-equal society would be one where the word does not exist: where everyone can be themselves” — Gloria Steinem
25th November is celebrated as the ‘International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women’. Violence against women and girls is one of the most widespread, persistent and devastating human rights violations in our world. Presidians of grade 4 to 7, together with their teachers gathered to create a heart, the symbol of love, as a means of promoting a positive message and locked arms in solidarity to collectively represent their rejection of domestic abuse. Students carried out various initiatives including art work like poster making, role-play activities to raise the respect for each gender. The aim of these initiatives was to raise the students’ awareness of domestic abuse and the importance of respectful communication within relationships.
