#ITSNOTOK – Gender Based Violence & Femicide
Written by Platinum Gold Radio on August 21, 2020
|Gender based violence and femicide (GBVF) have been a scourge on our society for a long time – made that much more critical during this time of global pandemic. But while this problem has continued, conversations and action to tackle it has not made any difference.|
Women’s Month is meant to celebrate the very people who are most victimized in our society. This year, let’s use this month to start action that truly supports and protects women, children and LGBTQI+ persons.
#ITSNOTOK is a movement that is asking every citizen and organisation to join forces and help make a difference to the lives of others. The #ITSNOTOK movement aim to create more awareness of this demon in our society and through creating 1 million pledges, to influence policy change.
The #ITSNOTOK movement belongs to everyone who is prepared to step up in and lead. You too can get involved to raise awareness, act, mobilise and galvanize for much-needed change in our society.
