Women Rising Above Conflict

ATC Women Advocacy Team in conjunction with Tamil Women’s Development (TWDG) Group initiated a forum that spotlighted ‘the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women’.  This was part of a 16 day global campaign to raise awareness against gender based violence. The event was supported by many human rights organisations, Refugee rights groups and church groups. 

Australian women from Tamil, Afghan and Kachin (Burma) communities were invited to share their experiences to highlight the insidious role militarism plays in perpetuating violence against women in their respective countries.
