Developing Effective Advocacy Campaigns (video, English)
The Developing Effective Advocacy Campaigns video features activists from WLP partner organizations in Jordan, Malaysia, Morocco, and Palestine who share their experiences using advocacy strategies to fight violence against women and to promote women’s human rights. Zainah Anwar describes the campaign to pass the Domestic Violence Act in Malaysia. Amina Lemrini of Morocco talks about the ongoing campaign to amend legislation to protect women from sexual harassment in the workplace. Suheir Azzouni describes Palestinian women’s efforts to reverse regulations requiring them to obtain permission from male guardians before applying for a passport. Asma Khader talks about the campaign to eliminate honor crimes in Jordan.
This video is part of the Leading to Choices Multimedia Toolkit for Leadership Learning, a three-part training package that builds women's skills to communicate effectively, facilitate participatory learning environments, and mobilize powerful advocacy campaigns. This package has been an integral component of WLP’s Training of Trainers (TOT) program since 2003, and continues to be used by women leaders across the Global South.
