Ways to curb gender-based violence discussed

HYDERABAD: Speakers at the concluding session of a three-day workshop held here on Friday emphasised that information and communication technology (ICT) could play a vital role in preventing and eliminating gender-based violence from society.

They highlighted the role and use of ICT in curbing such violence and said that ICT could help disseminate information on gender-based violence and increase levels of awareness.

The workshop was organised by the Sindh Community Foundation, a non-governmental organisation, in collaboration with the United Nations Trust Fund. Twenty-five youths from Dadu, Sukkur, Sanghar and Mirpurkhas districts participated in the programme.

Activists of civil society organisations Punhal Sario, Shahnaz Sheedi, Javed Hus­sain and Rehana Ali said that youths were vulnerable to early marriage. There was, therefore, need to dev­elop peer-to-peer education and spread awareness with the help of ICT, they added. They said that women needed education to understand the role of ICT in preventing violence against them.
