Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to end gender based violence against women in my country which in extension requires tackling of patriarchal supremacy that is a creation of societal conditioning.
It's all part of making a better world.
The world would be a better place with my vision in place as women will have more protections and society will be more educated and aware about women’s issues, thus advancing equality in my country. Awareness, coupled with a more proactive stance of the law and forefront organizations will ensure more societal freedoms for women.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by the women in my country from all walks of life.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
ratification of Conventions that aim to end sex-based hate crimes in my country, in addition to formally adopted policy I.e. into law that speaks to the local situation and is tough on such crime.
Educating the masses including young students in schools on the need to eradicate gender based violence and the importance of equality.
Processes that hold accountable those who implement local policy and international conventions.
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
If there’s a reduction in sex-based crime which can be determined by comparing previous quantitative data to the current data.
Interviewing Various individuals To determine their awareness as regards the issue and whether our campaign has been clearly understood by the masses.
Interviewing victims of sexual violence (qualitative data) to determine if their reintegration into society has been eased.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
