Workshop on Self Defense
Violence against women has emerged as a major concern for law enforcement agencies all over the world. The level of violence that women encounter in societies is unfathomable. This is especially true of women in developing countries. Over the last few years, justice departments, police, civil societies and the Indian government have been busy in evolving new strategies and methods of combating violence against women. We cannot change the basic structure of society overnight, but each step in the ongoing effort to eradicate violence puts more pressure on those who condone the violence allow it to exist. No single government or international agency or civil society organization can hope to have an impact by working in isolation alone. Pooling resources, sharing strengths and knowledge and mutual support will allow end-violence levels to move to the next level. Hence, the fight against the sexual assault in society is the joint responsibility of community, neighborhood, family, civil society, media, education system, criminal justice system and the government.
