Seminar on “Gender-based Violence in Schools and Universities” (20/12/2012)

The Secretary General participated in the seminar organized by La Sagesse University in partnership with the UNESCO Regional Office in Beirut on the study carried out by experts from the University on gender-based violence in schools and universities. In her speech at the opening session, she questioned the role of gender stereotypes conveyed by textbooks, as well as power relations governing patriarchal societies, noting that violence can originate in fear of the other in general and of women in particular.
