Celebrating 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence Campaign
WPD Nepal, with the support of IANSA (International Action Network on Small Arms) organized a mass rally on December 2nd, 2017 to mark the international day of activism against gender based violence. The purpose of the campaign was to educate students and the local individuals about the significant amount of gender based violence that occurs because of arms ownership. The rally began at Maitighar Mandala and ended at Shantibatika, Ratnapark in Kathmandu. Big banners bearing messages such as "Real men don't need guns" and "Eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls" drew the attention of thousands who were in attendance. Almost one hundred attendees participated in the rally which included students from different colleges, teachers, civilians and reporters.
