Femicide is preventable. Connect the dots campaign. MIGS has launched the FEM-United campaign that aims to raise awareness among front-line professionals, policy makers, and the general public on the prevention of intimate partner femicide and to enable citizens to call on governments, politicians and state institutions to take action.
Through the release of 5 videos, the campaign will underline the need to:
- Name the killings of women and girls due to their gender as femicide
- Link the normalisation of violence against women in our societies with femicide
- See the warning signs and risk factors associated with femicide
- Debunk myths and misconceptions on femicide that obscure the foundations of violence against women and femicide
- Collectively demand that governments take action to prevent femicide. Femicide is preventable: Connect the dots
You can see the videos of the campaign in English here:
- 1. Call it by its name
- 2. Femicide is only the tip of the iceberg
- 3. Don’t let intimate partner violence happen behind closed doors.
- 4. Lets connect the dots and put an end to femicide
You can see all the videos in different languages in the playlist here.
