Dear Usha, It is generally

Dear Usha,

It is generally believed that domestic violence is most prevalent in my country among the poor.However,very recently,we got to know abt Rumana's story and when I was doing a summer internship this year with a lawyer,we cam across many educated women belonging to middle class families and also some higher class who are either physically or mentally abused by their husbands or inlaws.

It is really unfortunate that such brutality still exists in our societies but I am hopeful that all this will change for the better one day...and that day will come soon.

dear Narwa Oh my God that is

dear Narwa
Oh my God that is such a painful story and it is my sincere hope that she finds the zeal to move on with her life coz honestly its too huge a scar to live on knowing that the one person you gave yourself to turned into a beast and made your life a living hell. We need to continue with this campaign and let women realise that no one is entitled to any form of violence and keeping quiet is only hurting the future of our children at large coz our daughters will also be battered and our sons will turn to such ruthless men. Hence i say we should take the initiative as women, daughters of this world and speak againist gender based violence as united our voices will make our laws very harsh to such offenders. Enway my dear be an ambassador in your country and we are with you in spirit and support. With lots of love irene.
