The global theme for this year’s 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence was “Orange the world: End violence against women now!” In line with the 2021 global umbrella theme HERA research Team and Nursing department organized story exhibition by collaborating with The story kitchen and WOREC at Auditorium Hall of Dhulikhel Hospital on December 9, 2021. The main objective was to
• To increase awareness on different types/ forms of gender based violence faced by women and LGBTQI+ and persons with disability in the community and amplify their voices
• To amplify GBV related efforts through evidences to policy and decision makers
• To bridge the gap between community needs and policy through scientific evidences

Stories from survivors of gender based violence, health care providers, women’s group experienced on dealing with survivors and LGBTQI + members of the community were displayed. In addition, we also exhibited experiences of focal personnel from various government agencies like National Women’s Commission, Ministry of Women Children and Senior Citizen, Department of Women and Children, Nursing and Social security division and Dhulikhel Municipality on gender based violence. WOREC displayed stalls of IEC materials and handmade products by women outside the hall.
