- Become A Narrator
A new study published in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health (JECH), has found that one in three women in India has been subject to some form of domestic abuse in her lifetime but only one in ten women had reported the violence to the police or a healthcare professional, suggesting the fear of retaliation remained strong. The violence not just impacts the victim but also children, families and the community at large. Every individual irrespective of gender, socio-economic status, educational qualification has a right to live a life with dignity and self-esteem, a life where they feel protected and happy.
Gendre based violation is a human right violation where we are depriving an individual of their rights, her freedom, her happiness and at times even her life. As a member of the community, it is the responsibility of each individual to raise his/her voice against this injustice. It’s time that we all become a part of the solution ….. until it’s too late and we realize that someone from our family or friend has become a victim of DV.
