Brief Description

Building on the 8 March celebration of International Women’s Day, the regional dialogues sought to create public forums to discuss ending impunity against women and children. The dialogues featured a drama by Siphila Nje Drama Group to spark discussions among participants. The multisectoral coordinating team behind the dialogues encouraged both men and women to attend the events. Rather than creating discussions that position men as the perpetrators of violence, the team wished to reach out to men as partners in the discussions. To help achieve this goal, each of the dialogues were facilitated by a male expert in the field of gender based violence.
