Collective resistance must be built to prevent violence against women and children

To reduce violence against women and children, men need to be taught how to give women dignity. Because the ideal man can never abuse women and child marriage. It is very important to involve men in all anti-violence programs. These were the words of the speakers at an exchange meeting with the local security committee to stop gender-based violence against women and children in Comilla.

On Sunday morning, under the BRAC Gender Justice and Diversity Program Engage Men and Boys Network for Promoting Gender Justice Bangladesh project, a symbolic youth parliament was organized at Pratya Training Center in Comilla with the Committee on Prevention of Gender-Based Violence against Women and Children.
