Self-defense workshop

Sexual harassment against girls is an ongoing concern. Familiar to many under the name “eve-teasing,” this violence continues to happen in schools, on the street, in buses, etc. Due to this alone, girls will often abandon their studies. In an attempt to build their initiative and self-confidence, the AGAZ program organized a six-day self-defense workshop for twenty-eight adolescent girls. In this workshop, the girls learned both how to defend themselves and understand their own self-importance. These adolescent girls took a decision to proclaim their self-respect by refusing to tolerate sexual harassment.
