About the UNFPA
In December 2021, UNFPA launched the global bodyright campaign. This is a movement against image-based abuse specifically but that aims to stress the urgency of addressing all forms of online violence against women and girls.
UNFPA wants to ensure that women and girls can express themselves freely online and access these resources without fearing violence and abuse. UNFPA also promotes the ethical use of technology to prevent online violence and respond to the needs of survivors.
The UNFPA is rallying all partners and supporters, from tech companies and social media platforms to policymakers, civil society and the general public, to promote the safe and ethical use of technology and develop concrete actions to put an end to online violence. We all have a role to play and a responsibility to address this issue that violates women’s rights and threatens gender equality. This is why for us is super important having the support of an internationally recognized figure like Elton Ilirjani, whose activism for the human rights of minorities has had an impact in very diverse circles. Perhaps the public that attends a Fashion Week is not so familiar with the work of UNFPA, which is very positive because it means that our messages will be reaching new and different audiences that we want to impact.
