Renowned Bangladeshi actress Jaya Ahsan has joined leaders and celebrities from across the Commonwealth for the 'Commonwealth Says NO MORE' campaign against domestic and sexual violence.

The Commonwealth Secretariat and NO MORE Foundation have launched the campaign designed to help tackle the immediate crisis of the rapid increase in domestic and sexual violence as part of the fallout of the Covid-19 pandemic, while also providing support for governments, organisations and individuals to confront this issue through longer-term prevention strategies and support.

"I feel proud to join Commonwealth in saying no more to domestic and sexual violence, and a pledge to say no more to domestic violence. For too long, people have said it is a private matter, but it's not. It's a pandemic that destroys lives and cripples the community. For too long, our society has not done enough to resist it," Jaya Ahsan said.

The campaign was launched with a special virtual event attended by representatives and advocates from across the Commonwealth.
