I will fight in my own ways such as changing the perception of the people around me about violence against women. Changing a culture that is so ingrained with inequality is hard, but, if we do it together, we can contribute so much for the change.
i have been a victim of attempted rape by my guy friend, and I choose not to speak up because of fear that everyone will judge me. here in the Philippines, raped girls always have bad reputations, it is like as if they are the ones responsible. it is so hard for me, until i realized that i can channel my energies into activities that will help empower woman. now, I want to help in changing the culture in the world towards women.
