#16Days #GBVteachin TODAY!

TODAY: WLUML participates in the annual 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence campaign via a Twitter teach-in!

Our topic: Can we overcome (or resist) culturally-justfied discrimination against women as a major barrier to education for women and girls?

We have a steady stream of tweets going up, publicising our most relevant resources and stories, and we urge everyone to share, retweet, particpate, ask questions, take part!

As a contribution to the campaign, we redirect you to one of the more relevant resources aailable from our projects: The Nexus of Peace and Security by Edna Aquino, which explains how peace,  security and militarism are enmeshed with culturally-justified violence and dsicrimination against women, which includes gender based violence as well as activism.
