The programs aim to encourage positive transformations on perceptions, attitudes, and behaviors of youth, others towards women and girls

To celebrate this year’s International Women’s Day, the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) and United Nations Development Program (UNDP) jointly organized a number of events, including dialogue and TV talk show on “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a Covid-19 world” on Monday. 

Actress Bidya Sinha Saha Mim joined the campaign on Women’s Safety in Public Places (WSPP) organized by NHRC, UNDP, and Youth Bangla – the youth platform of the Centre for Research and Information (CRI) to raise awareness on this pressing issue affecting women and girls all over Bangladesh.

The campaign aims to encourage and bring about positive transformations on perceptions, attitudes, and behaviors of youth and others towards women and girls, a UNDP press release said.

The Human Rights and Justice Program (HRJP) of UNDP is also currently hosting a virtual mobile photography exhibition to showcase photographs taken by a group of youths mostly from the underprivileged community, using their mobile phones, to capture the lives of women and girls in their communities.

As preparation for the exhibition, a total of 26 young female and male participants, principally from left-behind-communities, attended a mobile photography workshop, facilitated by photographer Prito Reza.

Young photographer Sumita Rabidas from the Gaibandha district shared her experience and excitement at having the opportunity to attend photography training.

“I previously only thought of the selfie while taking mobile photographs. By now, I have realized the power of mobile photography after attending the sessions and have taken some photographs of community women. 

“Since I am from a left behind community, I will be able to portray the struggle of women and girls from my community on the occasion of International Women Day 2021,” she said.

An online exhibition is available at http://iwdexhibition.jubobangla.com.bd/ for a month to allow the viewers to share comments and opinions.
