NAWOJ Zone “E” calls for media awareness on Gender Based Violence

As part of activities marking the 16 Days of activism against gender-based violence , the Nigeria Association of Women Journalists (NAWOJ) Zone E has joined in the campaign with a call on NAWOJ state councils in the zone to key into the clarion call to intensify media awareness on the dangers and the need to advocate for justice in favour of victims of sexual abuse particularly at the grassroots level.


A statement jointly signed by the Zonal Vice-President Dorcas Philemon, and the Zonal Secretary zone E, Hauwa Aliyu , indicates that the call is in commemoration of the 16 Days Activism against gender-based violence which started on November 25th and will end on December 10th with the theme ”’Orange the World: End Violence Against Women Now”.

The statement, noted that it is imperative to educate the rural populace who seem to be one of the most affected, and lack the knowledge and wherewithal to seek for justice whenever the need arises, hence the need to focus more with the campaign aimed at bringing them to giving the less privileged protection, access to safety and justice as well as a sense of belonging.


Zone E NAWOJ therefore reiterates its commitment to amplify the campaign in the remaining days of Activism through its respective media, and therefore directs its member states to do same Via programmes, social media, jingles, and spot announcements to advocate a violence free society.


NAWOJ also emphasises the need for relevant stakeholders to reinforce the campaign against Gender-Based violence.
