The damage caused by domestic violence, abuse, and sexual violence is increasing due to the corona virus.
In a society where discrimination against women remains, women experience many forms of violence. Such as illegal university entrance exams, non-regular employment, poverty of women, sexual harassment, and sexual violence that all eacalate especially during disasters.
Let’s raise our voice toward a society where people can live with gender equality, with respect and equality and diversity.
