ABAAD was recently selected as a global leader of the United Nations Generation Equality Action Coalition on Gender-Based Violence.

The Generation Equality Forum, a global gathering for gender equality, convened by UN Women and co-hosted by the governments of Mexico and France in partnership with civil society, announced the leaders of the Generation Equality Action Coalitions, to achieve gender equality and all women’s and girls’ human rights.

The Action Coalitions will deliver concrete and transformative change for women and girls around the world in the coming five years. They will focus on six themes that are critical for achieving gender equality: gender-based violence, economic justice, bodily autonomy, sexual and reproductive health, feminist action for climate justice, technology and innovation for gender equality, and feminist movements and leadership.

ABAAD, which operates in the MENA region, ran the awareness campaign #LockdownNotLockup, encouraging people to share the NGO’s helpline number alongside messages of solidarity outside their balconies during the lockdown.

At a time when our country suffers from pain, anger, and exhaustion, such international recognitions renew our determination to continue the path and reiterate our commitment to a righteous, humanitarian cause.
