Delhi, Haryana Police flags off '16 Days of Activism' against gender-based violence

Delhi, Haryana Police flags off '16 Days of Activism' against gender-based violence

New Delhi, Nov 28 (UNI) The annual '16 days of Activism' against gender-based violence was flagged off on Thursday by Haryana Police and the Delhi Police, with the screening of the National Award winning film 'Son Rise' for more than 10,000 police officers at the Haryana Police Academy and the Delhi Police Training Center.

The '16 days of Activism' against gender-based violence is an annual international campaign that started on November 25, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and will run till December 10, Human Rights Day.

The multi award winning documentary 'Son Rise' by National Award winning filmmaker, Vibha Bakshi, was screened to all the Police officers to sensitise them on gender-based violence.

'Son Rise' is a powerful gender rights film set in Haryana, a strong Patriarchal society. In this unlikeliest place, the filmmaker finds ordinary men taking on the extraordinary fight to change the narrative on gender inequality and gender justice.

Nishtha Satyam, Deputy Country Representative, India, Bhutan, Maldives and Sri Lanka of UN Women said, 'Nothing gets to the heart the way cinema does. SON RISE is ‘Magic’ since it brings out not only voices of discrimination but of courage, of sheer strength. I am so confident that Son Rise will lay the emergency exit for gender issues that our country faces. We, at UN Women are privileged and honored to partner with Vibha Bakshi on her film 'Son Rise'.'

Commenting on this powerful kickoff, Vibha Bakshi, National award winning filmmaker said, 'I would like to thank the leaders of the Police Force for kicking off 16 days of Activism with our film 'Son Rise'. The Police is the most important and largest touch point for our society and this huge initiative to gender sensitize the Police on gender crimes will magnify the impact towards ending gender violence.'
