In order to mark International women’s day this year, Tashadud Namanzur has launched a pictorial contest. Tashadud Namanzur is a social media campaign initiated to voice concerns and raise awareness regarding different forms of violence against women, prevalent in our society. The contest was launched as a follow-up to the youth dialogue organized by United Nations Pakistan in collaboration with Oxfam GB, EVAWG Alliance and Men Engage Alliance to commemorate the International Women’s day at Quaid-i-Azam University. The dialogue focused on demanding effective steps to put an end to violence against women.
To raise awareness,Tashadud Namanzur has employed different mediums in past, ranging from blogs to podcasts etc. However, this time it has taken the support of the emotional element, a picture has to offer, to take its cause to the next level.
