Sri Lanka GBV Forum bus2
The GBV Forum
November 25 – December 10, 2008
"This year the GBV Forum’s campaign to end gender-based violence in Sri Lanka used modes of public transport namely buses and trishaws to give greater visibility and voice to end violence against women. A total of 19 buses island-wide were branded in Sinhala, Tamil and English with a message “Violence against women hurts us all…Act Now – End violence against women.” Stickers in purple and gold with the same message were pasted inside the buses and on trishaws. A media campaign of men speaking against violence against women was also broadcast on TV and radio during the 16-day period."
