Day : Nine from the BB campaign


Day nine features a photograph by Megara Tegal.

In most cases of Gender Based Violence, be it street harassment, rape or domestic violence, women don’t seek help. The reason for this may be anything from feeling at fault for what happened to them or not having faith in the police or justice system.

Unfortunately, as long as women don’t speak up and they continue suffer in silence gender based violence will be persist in the world. It’s time we broke that silence.

Watch this blog for the next 8 days. We’ll be posting a featured photograph each day till 10 December as part of WMC campaign against GBV.
