Asunto: RE: 16 days campaign theme consultation 2007
Nosotras creemos que un tema muy importante y muchas veces invisible
para nuestro trabajo
La medicalización de nuestros cuerpos como una forma de violencia
La utilización de nuestros cuerpos por parte de la visión androcentrista
y de los intereses económicos por parte de las ciencias
El cuerpo de las mujeres ha sido históricamente vulnerado por los
individuos pero también por las comunidades.
Razones para escoger este tema.
-las violaciones sistematicas
-La vulneración de los derechos sexuales y reproductivos
-los sesgos de salud como hechos invisibles que nos afectan
-la creación de síndromes o enfermedades como una forma de violencia:
ejemplo el la menopausia como enfermedad, la llamada disfunción sexual
-la epidemia del vih como una forma de violencia
-la pronografia
-la publicidad que utiliza el cuerpo de las mujeres
-el trafico y la prostitución

Asunto: 16 days campaign theme consultation 2007
Dear Colleagues,

The announcement below was sent to the 16 Days listserve last week.  We
thought it might be useful to send to our wider network since you too
may also have suggestions.  The deadline has been extended to 6pm,
Tuesday, June 26th.

Thank you.

16 Days team at CWGL


Dear Friends, my name is Sadia Hameed and I am a volunteer coordinator
helping the Center for Women's Global Leadership begin the process of
selecting the theme for the 2007 16 Days of Activism Against Gender
Violence campaign. I will be facilitating this consultation for the next
few weeks and look forward to being in touch with you all.

Consultation on 2007 16 Days Campaign Theme: Demanding Implementation,
Challenging Obstacles
As activists working to prevent violence against women, we all face
obstacles and challenges to our work. These obstacles may include a lack
of implementation of gender-sensitive policies, resource constraints or
even backlash from our communities. As a movement, it is important to
identify what challenges we face and how to overcome them in order to
move forward effectively and collectively in our efforts.  The 16 Days
campaign is one vehicle that we can use to speak out, challenge
obstacles and make our demands known!

This year's campaign will seek to demand implementation by challenging
those obstacles that stand in the way of realizing an environment where
women are free from violence- including those obstacles that we as
activists face when trying to move forward in our work. Like previous
years, this campaign also seeks to recognize the widespread efforts
being undertaken on the issue of violence, especially in the areas of
implementation and prevention work.

As we begin the consultation for the 16 Days campaign theme, CWGL
invites you to share what you feel are the most important challenges and
obstacles that hinder you/your organization from being able to
effectively move forward in your work on preventing violence against
women.  Please share with us any resource materials or fact sheets you
have put together on this issue and help us decide our campaign slogan
by sending us your ideas, suggestions and comments.  See slogans below
for examples from previous years.

As we are eager to begin preparations for the campaign we request that
you send us your feedback by Friday, June 22nd to
sadiahameed at hotmail.com.

Many thanks,
