Campaign against gender-based violence kicks off across country


To mark the U.N.-designated International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women Sunday, organizations are holding events across Lebanon as part of a 16-day campaign to raise awareness on gender-based violence.

From Nov. 25 to Dec. 10, the U.N. and the National Commission for Lebanese Women will run ads across media with the hashtag #Bakirr3laya (“It’s too early for her”), the U.N. said.
