For the first time this October, India observes Domestic Violence Awareness Month, making it an international event. This year, the focus isn’t just on violence against women, but also on the spreading of awareness of men as victims of domestic violence and harassment. This post elaborates in detail the forms of violence against women, men, children and the elderly.
To gauge our community’s awareness on the issue, we put out a few questions. And although it’s only been one day at the time of this post, I have to say the quality of response is extremely heartening. Sensitized and informed, opinion is strong and information abounds.
Here are the questions we have up. We’ll be following this post with a round-up of insights from you, our readers, so please feel free to add your own interpretations, your own experiences, and contribute to the conversation as we spread awareness around the issue of domestic violence.
