Announcing Violence Against Women Awareness Month October 2011

Dear Friends,

Thank you all for supporting our initiative through April 2011 on CSA.
For October we are planning a similar initiative, taking the topic of Violence Against Women. We are cognizant with the fact the subject on violence against woman is very huge 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

We, the core team, would be delighted to have your support for VAWM Oct 2011.
The plan is similar to CSA April 2011.
We have a blog on Violence Against Women where we invite guest posts and anon survivor stories.
We also would like bloggers to post on this topic on the blog all through October, first announcing the month and second, posting on any aspect of this topic they feel strongly about.
We also have a twitter handle which will tweet information about VAWA and invite experts, NGOs, counsellors, etc to take questions. @ VAWMonth
Do let us know if you would be interested in participating, and how would you like to participate. Also, if you have any leads to NGOs or organisations you think we should partner with do let us know.
The email to write in to is vawawareness@gmail.com.
Please do feel free to forward this to anyone you feel might be interested and might want to contribute/participate.

Warm regards,

VAWM core team

    We all must strive hard to protect all our Women folks from domestic as well as other types of violences happening day in and day out. Unless we don’t have a happy and protective atmosphere for our women we may get retarded and may even get extinct. We need tools to make it happen. We must salute the people who want to highlight this gross inhuman behavior through this october .My best wishes with all of u on the front.

    Thank you sirjee.
