NO EXCUSE FOR ABUSE
Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is a pandemic within the pandemic. Globally, almost one third (30%) of women have experienced some form of physical and/or sexual violence by their intimate partner in their lifetime. In Sri Lanka, women are more than twice as likely to have experienced physical violence by a partner, rather than by a non-partner.
FPA's Youth Technical Advisory Committee (YTAC) launched the "No Excuse for Abuse" social media campaign in hopes of sparking a conversation online on partner violence. The campaign features a trilingual resource guide and Instagram filter that users could use, to voice their stories on the issue, and raise further awareness.
The resource guide was compiled in close collaboration with Bakamoono, a website and social media platform that imparts knowledge and facilitates open conversations on self-respect, respect for others, and respecting differences.
