IAWRT Kenya holds safety training, spreads awareness on GBV for #16Days

by IAWRT Kenya

The Kenyan Chapter was taken through a training for the safety of journalists by the former Vice President of IAWRT International Ms. Abeer Saady. She was in Kenya to train Sudanese journalists who are displaced and live in most East African countries. She jumpstarted the 16 days of activism against gender-based violence (GBV) for the Kenyan Chapter.

“Women harassment should not be normalized as part of the job, and one should not be alone in the face of harassment, either online or offline,” stressed Abeer.

For 16 days of activism, members of the Kenyan Chapter sent out messages every day that went out on local media and social media platforms, particularly on X (former Twitter).

IAWRT Kenya chapter head Josephine Karani participated in a live morning show on the national broadcaster Kenya Broadcasting Corporation to showcase the work the chapter has been doing towards sensitizing women on their safety online. Watch the episode here:
