During the 16 Days of Activism against GBV 2019, WLP Malaysia/AWAM conducted activities to raise awareness throughout the country, including a social media campaign, an online petition to advocate against rape, development of informational posters, and organization of a rally to demonstrate support for ending GBV.
In 2018, Amal Al-Jamani attended a workshop conducted by WLP’s partner in Jordan, Solidarity is Global Institute-Jordan (SIGI-J), and is now an emerging women’s rights leader in her community. In her own words, Amal described herself as shy and unsure of how she could contribute in a group of more experience activists. However, inclusive activities and interactive exercises encouraged Amal to discover the critical experience and skills she had to share with the rest of the workshop participants. Since that day, she has continued to develop her role as a leader and recognize the potential in others, a process that has helped her reach new positions of influence in her community.
