NDO/VNA - Ten outstanding works were honoured at the awards ceremony of the contest “Men take action – Stop Violence against Women” held at the Green One United Nations House in Hanoi on June 28.


The contest was organised from May 24 to June 24 by the Centre for Studies and Applied Sciences in Gender, Family, Women, and Adolescents (CSAGA) with the technical and financial support from the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) and the Bread for the World.

It attracted the participation of 139 entries. The organising board then chose one first prize, one second prize, two third prizes, five consolation ones, and one for the entry with the highest interaction rate.

Speaking at the ceremony, Naomi Kitahara, UNFPA Chief Representative in Vietnam, emphasised that UNFPA expressed her wish that women and girls will not be left behind during Vietnam’s development process due to gender violence.

On this occasion, UNFPA and CSAGA called for action by the community in general and men in particular in ending violence against women and girls to create an equal and safe society for them.
