International Women's Day -2012, Saheed Minar,Dhaka

Welcome to WE CAN Bangladesh

We Can is a collective platform of civil society, organizations, individuals, institutions and others aim of ending domestic violence against women. WE CAN campaign was launched in 6 South Asian countries including Bangladesh with an aim to stop all sorts of violence against women. The idea of WE CAN campaign is to break the silence, denial, shame and stigma around the issue of domestic violence against women and bring it under the public domain, collective consciousness and accountability. WE CAN campaign started at a time when domestic violence against women was not considered as a violence under the legal system in Bangladesh. In 2011, during the annual general meeting (held on 20th April), the member organisations and individuals decided to continue the campaign by the self identity of WE CAN Alliance to end Domestic Violence (Amrai Pari Paribarik Nirjaton Protirodh Jot). Following the decision emerged the independent platform Amrai Pari Paribarik Nirjaton Protirodh Jot in Bangladesh.
