HBS Director Mirco Kreibich took part in the ceremony and HBS partners May Sabe Phyu of GEN and Saw Eh Doh Poe of Yangon Film School participated later in a panel discussion, together with Aung Myo Min of Equality, acting DG San San Aye of DSW and a representative of UNFPA. The video clips were well received by the audience, including ministers Dr Pe Myint and Win Myat Aye, as powerful statements to end all forms of violence against women.
