The Gibraltar Women’s Association (GWA) says it welcomes the recent RGP operation to control underage consumption of tobacco and alcohol. The GWA says that families around the Rock should be more aware that children are being served alcohol during the evening in and around popular teenage hang outs and the implications this has on not only their health, but also on their vulnerability and safeguarding issues. The GWA calls for continued awareness in this area and hardline targeting by both the RGP, licensing department and the courts on those establishments who supply tobacco and alcohol to underage children.
The Gibraltar Women’s Association (GWA) says it is proud to support one of its Sub Committee members, Nadia Esserti, who is running a stall on February 1st to support World Hijab Day. This will be the first time Gibraltar will be celebrating this event and the GWA says it is pleased to support the campaign’s aims of education, awareness, understanding and peace. World Hijab Day is an annual event founded by Nazma Khan that takes place on the 1st of February in over 140 countries. Its purpose is to encourage women of all religious backgrounds to wear and experience the Hijab and also come together and show solidarity and unity.
