Young people have a lot to say about gender-based violence. They are passionate about the issues.
Young people have been raising awareness through social media, websites and local groups. It is really important that young people’s views are heard!
There are lots of ways to get involved and help stop gender-based violence. If your school is doing Equally Safe at School (ESAS) you can:
