“Who died and made you the king of anything?”

In most instances GBV occurs, as there is a false perception that one sex is stronger, powerful and more influential than the other. And a higher percentage of that is reflected as violence agaisnt women. The patriarchal system prevalent in Sri Lanka and most  parts of the world only adds on to this making such heinous crimes almost justifiable.
