Street Theatre Production aimed at highlighting gender-based violence – 14th Dec 2012

“Real men don’t hit, real women wouldn’t hide it”, is the focus of a street theatre production aimed at highlighting gender-based violence, abuse and proper family planning.

The initiative is the brainchild of Simone Dowding, Executive Director of the Purple Arts Production. Dowding said, her drive to make an impact was born many years ago after having a first hand experience.

The project is getting funding from the United Nations Population Fund and Assistant Representative, Patrice La fleur, spoke of the UN involvement in this exercise.

Purple Heart Production will be at various locations around the city as they try to raise the further awareness of gender-based violence.
