• Gender Violence and Discrimination

    Posted on February 20, 2013 by in Uncategorized

    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.
