The informational event dedicated to the beginning of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence World Campaign was held by SSU. It took place in the front of the university’s main academic building on November 25, 2015. The volunteers were handing around equality postcards containing the contact information for those who suffered from violence. Students’ creativity and flesh mob turned attention to the campaign.

The event was organized with the help of SSU Gender Resource Center and Cultural and Artistic Center supported by the Social Security Department of Sumy Regional State Administration.

The project coordinator of SSU Gender Resource Center Yuliia Savelieva is more than sure that we have to put an end to the actions assaulting human dignity. During the next 2 weeks SSU will host the events preventing violence in all of its kinds, e.g. arrogant attitude of men towards women; the same goes for parents and their children. By the way, Yuliia Savelieva is also one of the organizers of this campaign.

The activity of Gender Resource Center, Cultural and Artistic Center, Family Support Center, Coordinating Center of Humanitarian Policy, SSU Volunteering Movement is aimed at moral, ethical and aesthetic education of SSU students.

In Ukraine this international campaign will last for 16 days starting from November 25th and ending on December 10th. Thousands of people and hundreds of public and state organizations are joining their efforts in order to achieve a common goal: they would like to attract public attention to the problems of overcoming domestic violence, child abuse and gender violence, providing equal rights for women and men, and combating human trafficking.
