OBR Zimbabwe Launch
By Nyasha Sengayi (OBR Zimbabwe coordinator)

One Billion Rising Zimbabwe launched its 2018 Campaign on the 8th of December 2017. The theme of SOLIDARITY remains the focus of One Billion Rising 2018 with a call to escalate our action and rising against any form of exploitation for women and girls. Zimbabwe is prioritizing inter-generational solidarity between movements for girls and women to preserve the gains and achievements of the women’s movements which are under threat from acts of tyranny, militarism and bad governance. These challenges have presented challenges for the security of women and girls. therefore Zimbabwe joins the world in adding its voice to resist all forms of abuse perpetrated against women and girls in this and to unite to the call of revolution in the way women and girls are treated. We are also taking this opportunity to celebrate 20 years of revolution which our founding partner of the campaign has invested in ensuring that a much more audible voice for ending violence against women prevails. These 20 years of revolution are critical and important for us as they reflect a deep foundation of solidarity which will create a safe space for women.
