Describe your idea (200 Words)
Gender based violence, specifically physical violence is a very big problem in Temeke district. Women are usually disregarded and seen as “tools to perform violence upon”. There has been a wide report of women being mistreated and thus ending up in divorces, physical and mental trauma and disabilities. Out of every 10 women 8 are abused physically: this is to say that women are not respected at all. A woman must be regarded as a gem, as a precious being. My idea is solely based on showing how much women are brutally beaten and violated by men. I have been a witness to physical violence where a man literally holds his wife to gunpoint in front of their children. This experience has led me to try and describe how many women are affected by physical violence throughout. I believe that this is a wake up call to all women and men to stand up and take action against physical violence against women_nay, physical brutality. Instead of 8 out of 10 women being abused everyday, why shouldn’t it be zero women being physically abused. Our voices need to be raised up so as we can fight against this problem.
