MONROVIA, LIBERIA-Gender, Children and Social Protection Minister, Willemetta Saydee-Tarr, is calling for continued collaboration and advocacy against Gender-Based Violence across Liberia.


Minister Saydee-Tarr said:” Tackling gender-based issues in Liberia requires state actors, including Civil Society Organizations, to step up their support.’


She said Gender-based Violence continues to affect nearly every sector of the Liberian society to the extent that women and children; the direct victims of GBV, are now getting angry over the matter.


Madam Saydee-Tarr noted further that men need to join their female counterparts to end GBV in the Country.


She made the call Monday, November 26, 2018, at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium in Monrovia at the start of Sixteen Days of Activism in Liberia.


Sixteen Days of Activism is an international campaign intended to create awareness and calls for a halt to violence against women and children.


The 2018 campaign is being held under the theme: End Gender-based Violence in the World of Work.
