take back the tech: sms campaign

SMS Campaign: Speak out! Stand out! Commit to preventing Violence
against Women Join us to Speak Out, Stand Out, and Commit to
preventing Violence against Women during the 16 Days of Activism
Against Gender Violence

With your participation, WOUGNET in collaboration with Womensnet,
South Africa and APC-Africa-Women (AAW), will be conducting an
SMS-based campaign. The idea is to send out an SMS on each of the
16
Days of Activism that will allow individuals and organisations to
Speak Out, Stand Out, and Commit to preventing Violence against
Women.
We would like you to send your slogan/message which highlights your
resistance to violence against women. You can participate in any or
all of the following ways:

1. Contribute a short message or slogan on the theme of the
campaign. If your slogan is chosen, it will be sent out via SMS with
you/your organisation credited as the source of the message. It will
also feature on the Take Back the Tech campaign website at:
http://www.takebackthetech.net/index.php
2. Send us news on your activities and events for the 16 Days of
Activism 3. Register your mobile number to receive the SMSs that
will be
sent out during the 16 Days of Activism

For more information and/or to participate, please send a note to
info@wougnet.org.

In addition, WOUGNET in partnership with Overcoming Gender Based
Violence (Overcoming GBV) – Oxfam GB, is making a number of
materials available to WOUGNET members and partners to mark the
16 Days of Activism. Stop by the WOUGNET Office, Plot 53 Kira Road
Kamwokya, to collect purple ribbons that you can wear to Stand Out!
and posters to pin-up. E-cards and e-posters are also available online
at: http://www.preventgbvafrica.org/.
