Bystanders and gender-based violence
“Women are strong individuals. They have and will take care of themselves but in order for women to successfully leave any abusive relationship, they need the support and help of everyone around them.”
UN Women Program Specialist Abigail Dorothy Erikson has urged bystanders and witnesses to gender-based violence to step in and show support for the survivors.
Erikson recently spoke with participants at the EU delegation office in Suva, Fiji during a 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence workshop.
