We recognize International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and the beginning of #16Days of Activism to End Gender Violence with #DayOfSilence. Join Equality Bahamas in sharing the weight of women and girls’ untold stories, recognizing the difficulty of reporting or talking about ongoing or past experiences of violence.
In support of women and girls who feel alone with their stories, we will keep silence on Saturday from midnight to 4pm. Please join us at The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas to share the final hour of silence, from 3 to 4pm, and break the silence with drumming and affirmations in a circle of women, girls, and allies.
Once we break the silence, we will make our voices heard in a series of actions during the 16-day period and beyond. Like Equality Bahamas on Facebook for frequent updates and the release of the #16Days toolkit.
