Campaign against sexual violence in Bengal on Valentine's day
The One Billion Rising campaign to protest violence against women will kick off in West Bengal Feb 14 with the theme "I Rise against Sexual Violence", a statement said Wednesday.
It is a global campaign which calls for an end to violence, for justice and gender equality. This is also a global call to women survivors of violence and those who love and support them to speak up against atrocities against women, the statement said.
Kolkata-based women's rights organisation 'Swayam' will spearhead the campaign, in collaboration with the Jadavpur University's School of Women's Studies.
According to Swayam, as part of the movement, a workshop will be held Feb 14 to discuss the Sexual Harassment of Women at workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013.
A walk-through inside the varsity's campus has also been scheduled during the day to express solidarity with the campaign.
A large number of organisations and individuals have joined the cause in the state.
