Celebration of International Women’s Day in Saida

A meeting to celebrate the International Women's Day was conducted in March 14, 2013 in a local NGO’s centre in Saida. 153 women from (PARD’s committees’ members and local health educators) the 13 gatherings in Beirut and the South attended.

Campaign on Early MarriageEarly Marriage Campaign01

The women committees in Beirut and the South chose to work on an issue which is related to rights-health and social status. Through their work in their community they found that very young women are interested in marriage due to the influence of social media and Television (Turkish series and others). This media influence went along with other influences especially parents or parent encouragement or coercion, family members influence, ignorance, economical needs, leaving schools and others. The women committees launched a campaign to decrease the frequency of early marriage in their communities through statistics, raising awareness (143 lectures benefiting 170 males {16- 20 years old} and 1404 females {12- 18 years old}) and problem solving. This campaign will end by mid 2014.
