16 Days of Activism with IGDS Ignite
As a part of the 16 Days of Activism, the student group, IGDS Ignite (Institute for Gender and Development Studies, St. Augustine Unit) raised awareness of sexual street harassment by Chalking Back!
The Silver Lining Foundation stands in solidarity with the CATCALLS project and their #feminist activism. Women, girls and #LGBTI persons are catcalled and harassed publicly every day.
A significant part of the #activism was education around recognizing what entails consent and knowing when consent is given or not. This is all an effort to address sexual violence and abuse.
16 Days of Activism is a global campaign that challenges violence against women and girls.
