NASSAU, BAHAMAS – The University of The Bahamas taking a strong stance against gender-based violence, with the kick-off of 16 days of activism.

Vice President of Academic Affairs at UB, Dr. Maria Woodside-Oriakhi says The Bahamas has witnessed the escalating threat of gender-based violence during the pandemic, and now is the time to act.



During a ribbon-tying ceremony on Thursday, marking the international day for the elimination of violence against women, Dr. Oriakhi and representatives from the university community called on Bahamians to stop ignoring the issue of violence against the vulnerable, and speak up.

Sixteen days of activism against gender-based violence is an initiative spearheaded by the Center for Women’s Global Leadership, giving people the tools they need to speak out against gender-based violence.
