Violence against women is not inevitable. It can be prevented. ‘Prevention’ is the theme of the 2015 International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on 25 November. The campaign “16 days call for action to End Violence against Women” also starts on this date and continues to Human Rights Day on 10 December.

‘The Fox Exploits the Tiger’s Might, a 25-minute film produced by BabibutaFilm and Hivos Southeast Asia, has won a prestigious award at the Indonesia Film Festival (FFI) 2015 for best short film. It was directed by talented young director Lucky Kuswandi, who has received nominations at the Hong Kong International Film Festival and the Tokyo International Film Festival.

Hivos is appalled at the events in Paris that claimed many lives of innocent civilians. IS claimed responsibility for the attacks, which were carried out mostly by French citizens. Almost immediately after this horrific violence was wreaked particularly on places of entertainment, calls for drastic measures resounded from every corner, such as closing borders or wiping IS 'off the face of the earth'.
