Women against Violence – Stand up, Speak up, Reach out


I hope you all remember the April 2011 Child Sexual Abuse Awareness initiative. For October we are planning a similar initiative, on the topic of Violence Against Women.

We are cognizant of the fact that the subject of violence against woman is very vast and includes multiple aspects. To ensure that this awareness campaign is effective, we have limited our scope to the following aspects….

1. Domestic violence – Physical violence against the woman by husband/partner and other family members

2. Violence against girl child including deprivation

3. Sexual violence – including marital rape, date rape

4. Emotional/psychological abuse

5. Dowry related violence including Bride Burning

6. Female Infanticide

7. Acid attacks

As a member of the core team, I invite you to support and strengthen VAWM Oct 2011 as only you can. You can…
