Life is valuable and we deserve love and respect. domestic violence is never okay and tolerating it is never a solution.

Woman can play a significant role as advocates of change- by promoting awareness, empowering individuals to speak out and advocating to protect victims .

Woman together can create a society where “domestic violence is not tolerated and survivors receive support they need to heal and thrive”.
