"Neither custom nor culture justifies violence towards women," the slogan of activity read.
Building gender intercultural citizenships
The URACCAN Centre for Multi-Ethnic Women's Studies and Information (CEIMM) held a working session with the Commission on the Eradication of Gender-Based Violence, Discrimination and Other Related Intolerance through a regional day against discrimination and violence; the three-day activity was a space for dialogue and proposals for action to address the issue of violence within the university community.
The activity was carried out under the slogan "No custom, no culture justify violence against women", allowing an analysis of the context of gender-based violence that continues to be perpetrated against women.
Teacher Yamilex Aguilar, a member of this commission at URACCAN's New Guinea campus, explained that they have been working from it and that "more allied members have been enriched with the aim of preventing and preventing gender-based violence between the university community and other communities," adding that "having this commission is a great strength it brings to other internal violence prevention standards."
For her part, teacher Johana Arana, an allied teacher, said that "the commission has worked on evaluating her actions, but she has also built a plan that will strengthen the work of preventing the violence that takes place".
In this regard, teacher Greysi Pauth stated that "one of the main objectives of the commission is to prevent violence among the university community, so students, teachers and administrators have been given talk, so that they know the commission and the functions; victims have also been accompanied in cases that are presented."
The activity is carried out within the framework of the Decolonization and Depatriarcalization project for Transformation from Education, funded by the Norwegian International Student and Academic Assistance Fund (SAIH).
