International campaign on Violence Against Women (VAW) is carried out from 25th November to 10th December every year.

Women from different South Asian countries decided in 2002 to celebrate 30th November as South Asian Women’s Day.

16 day campaign on Violence Against Women is underway along with South Asian Women’s Day.

We stand together!

Many men just stop by to see what is happening here in Kirulapone junction by women.

Respect WOMEN

Respect Humanity.

Think seriously about the issue&make your commitment honestly. Treat WOMEN with dignity and equality.

Some school boys giggle and think this is useless. Guys, you need to think for yourself,your mother,your sister&of course your girl friend.

Violence Against Women (VAW) is not a laughing matter! Think aloud, and be wise!

“What a good move by women” says an old gentleman in his White sarong into my right ears☺.We need more men like this gentlemen.
