On November 30, 2016, Oxfam Nigeria with partner organisations launched the Enough! Campaign as part of activities to mark the 16 days of activism to end violence against women and girls to challenge and replace the age long misconception about men and boys; women and girls.
The campaign seeks to help individuals and communities understand the drivers and enablers of violence and build their capacity to say “Enough” to harmful attitudes and behaviours. Partners brainstormed on ways to undertake effective advocacy work that will ensure women’s rights organizations and movements are supported, which will in turn lead to an increase in the implementation of laws and policies aimed at ending violence against women and girls.
The event featured a video screening addressing early marriage; Female Genital Mutilation; physical, verbal and psychological abuse. From the screening rose engaging experience sharing anddiscussions. Resolutions were made to reach out to the key influencers (religious and traditional leaders) in each area, collaborate with them as agents of change; partner withCSOs and engage the media for advocacy as drivers of change byproducing advocacy materials for wide dissemination on all media platforms.
