Education Campaign Against Gender-Based Violence Being Developed

Jamaica News: The Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport is collaborating with the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) to develop a ‘No Excuse for Abuse’ public education campaign.

The campaign is part of a three-year Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), between the Government and the UN Women Multi-Country Office of the Caribbean, entered into in September, for implementation of the National Strategic Plan to Eliminate Gender-based Violence.

“Included in this MOU is the funding of the ‘No Excuse for Abuse’ campaign. The… campaign will take the anti-violence message to communities across the country,” said Portfolio Minister, Hon Olivia Grange, in a Statement in the House of Representatives on Tuesday (November 6).

Ms. Grange said that the campaign seeks to empower women and men, confront old notions about a woman’s place, and encourage behaviour change among women and men.

“We are grateful to the many partners — local and international — who continue to give support to our various initiatives to end gender violence,” she noted.
