The Palestinian Working Women's society for Development had launched a new campaign to lobby and advocate for social and legal protection for women and girls, and to stop all forms of gender-based violence, which comes under the slogan "No tolerance for violence against women and girls – Sada campaign."

In this context, the association noted in a statement, "Violence against women and girls in Palestine is one of the most widespread and persistent violations of human rights. However, most of it remains unreported due to the lack of punishment, silence, a sense of scandal and the stigma surrounding it."
