16 Days of Activism

During the Stopping Violence Against Women Day event in Mae Sariang attendees discussed the White Ribbon meaning and the story of the Unforgettable Butterflies. The Mirabel sisters, three women from the Dominican Republic who were assassinated for their political activism in the 1960s are known as the “Unforgettable Butterflies.”  They became a symbol of the crisis of violence against women in Latin America. November 25th, the date of their assassination, was chosen as the International Stop Violence Against Women’s Day to commemorate their lives and promote global recognition of the pandemic of gender-based violence.

Stop Violence Against Women’s Day at KWO Mae Sariang Office

Violence Against Women Day 2011

Events were held, during the 16 Days of Activism, in all 7 Karen Refugee Camps. KWO organized this activity in some cases alone and in other in cooperation with other NGO’s, CBO’s, or Camp Committees. We have complete reports from 4 of those events held in Mae Ra Moo, Umphiem, Ei Tu Tah, and Bang Doh Yang Camps. We also held an event at the KWO Resource Center in Mae Sariang. All the activities were held during the 16 days between the International Stop Violence Against Women’s Day and International Human Rights Day in December. We distributed information in writing to people and showed a video about gender based violence called  “Bringing Justice to Women of Burma”  produced by the Women’s League of Burma. We also held a quiz where small prizes were distributed to the winners. These activities were funded by the Women’s League of Burma. There were 2152 participants, men and women, across the camps.
