A Crises in India regarding the Law on Domestic Violence: Please Lend your support
As this year closes, the the issue of violence on women in India stands at a crossroad. And we really need your support on this one. All you have to do is put your comment on the post as your token support.
498A is a significant law in India that is meant to protect married women from violence inflicted on them by their husbands and in-laws. Over the last few years there has been a very powerful, wealthy, lobby of Indian men, many living outside India, who have funded a strong anti 498A drive and have managed to put the law before the Indian administration for amendment. [If you type 498a into google these people have more or less hogged the front two pages. They've aggressively taken over the net].
The 50 Million Missing Campaign will be sending this memorandum (letter below) to the government Committee considering this amendment, and we are protesting this amendment. We request that you put your comments in the boxes below supporting our protest.Your email address will not be published. You can also send an email directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.(deadline is December 30)
