"Women Empowerment" Cartoon Competition

“Women Empowerment” has become a significant topic of discussion in development and economics. Your aim is to highlight this important issue in a cartoon using either the topic of Child Marriage or Domestic Violence.

Winning Idea

As part of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence campaign, The United Nations Population Fund Jordan (UNFPA), collaborated with Seven Circles and cartoonist Omar Al Abdallat to bring the 'Women Empowerment' Cartoon Competition to Working Dreamers.

"To mark the campaign this year, we wanted to find an innovative way to shed light on gender-based violence," said Laila Baker, UNFPA Jordan Representative. "We think cartoons can provide a fresh take on a subject matter that is often times not easy to explore."

There were two winners for this competition:

1. Underage by Alaa Rustum won based on highest number of votes.
2. Marriage of Minors by Doaa El Adl won based on jury choice.

Winners received $500 each by the Landmark Amman Hotel.
