We Are Not To Be Touched Without Consent
One in three women throughout the world will experience physical, and sexual violence in by a partner or by a non-partner. According to the local police statistics, a total of 57, 519 cases of violence against women were reported in Malaysia from 2010 until March 2017.
In conjunction with international day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women which falls on the 25th November, 4 Malaysian women voice out their real life experiences on physical and sexual abuse. Basically, women in Malaysia are still afraid to speak up because the idea of a sexual assault is presumed to be shameful or deemed as an embarrassment for the survivor. As a result, they tend to be suffering in silence, which could lead to depression.
Together, we can prevent this from happening.
