HÀ NỘI — The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) Office in Việt Nam hosted a training workshop for key opinion leaders (KOLs) in Hà Nội on October 12 to eliminate violence against women and children.

The event gathered more than 40 KOLs, including artists, singers, writers, athletes and MCs.

Speaking at the event, UN Women Representative Elisa Fernandez Saenz said that everyone has a role to play in ending violence against women and children, in which the participation of influencers is essential as they have great power over the community, especially young people.

She called for participants in turning the inspiration created at the workshop into concrete actions to end all forms of violence against children and women.

The workshop was held on the eve of the National Action Month on gender equality, and prevention and response to gender-based violence, which is set to take place from November 15 to December 15.

On September 30, a similar workshop was held in HCM City, drawing the participation of over 30 KOLs. — VNS
