Last week on Valentine’s Day, iOppose joined millions of women around the world, in the One Billion Rising Campaign. This was a peaceful strike, using joy and dance, to stand up against the gender violence aimed at billions of women around the world.
Following on with that theme, and a story you are likely familiar with, is the violence that happened in India last December. A woman, accompanied by her boyfriend, was viciously beaten and raped on a public form of transportation, and then died 13 days later. The officials blamed the victim for provoking her attackers. Her fault in essence was the fact that she was a woman. The Buffalo News took a deeper look and we would like to hear your comments on the situation.
