HadHiHai on Gender-based Violence

As the world retreated inside homes due to the lockdown measures introduced to curb the COVID-19 pandemic, reports showed an alarming increase in the already existing issue of violence against women.


HadHiHai was an initiative to support the UN Women’s 16-day campaign on activism against Gender-Based Violence that took place from 25 November to 10 December 2020. Every year on November 25, UN Women runs a 16-day campaign to spread awareness on the Elimination of Violence against women. The 2020 Global Theme was “Orange the World: Fund, Respond, Prevent, Collect!”. The project aimed to amplify the voice of women against gender inequality through digital advocacy and an online campaign. Shapers interviewed members of the community to get a glimpse of what domestic violence means to them.
