For those in Lebanon, please find the event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/171190029664659/
Let us march to mourn and honour the women who have died as a result of domestic violence, let us send out a message of solidarity to those still trapped in their living hell, let us call on our useless, corrupt, criminal governement to vote the anti VAW law, not in the state it is currently in, all maimed, but the draft that the coalition submitted.
I will be part of a panel on Citizenship rights and Lebanese women on the 7th of March at the American University of Beirut. Join if you can!
At least one woman dies every month as a result of family violence in Lebanon – and these are just the stories that actually make it to the press.
