Saint Lucians March Against Gender-Based Violence

Saint Lucians March Against Gender-Based Violence

Saint Lucians last Saturday took to the streets of the capital Castries to show how much they are against domestic violence, particularly violence against women.

It was the end of the 16 Days of Activism, which is an annual campaign against gender-based violence that runs from November 25 to December 10, marking the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

In Saint Lucia over the years many stories about women being abused at home have become public, many voices are still being silenced, many stories remain untold, and many stories never reach social media feeds.

This is the same worldwide, a reason why women and men join togetherness to raise awareness about the abuse women suffer and the need for such an abuse to end.

The Castries march last Saturday was organized by the Vulnerable Persons Team (VPT) of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF), which undertook various initiatives to heighten public awareness and strengthen sensitivity toward gender-based violence.

The VPT partnered with The Laborie Credit Union and Miss Universe (Saint Lucia) 2022 to undertake the initiatives.
