You may think that you can do nothing to stop the seemingly unstoppable tide of violence against women that is sweeping the world. From the advance of radical Islam, the appalling attitude of men in India, Silvio Berlosconi standing for office again in Italy,Todd Akin in the USA saying that some rapes were understandable, the list seems endless.
Today we can do something. the campaigning website Avaaz wants to start with India and prevent these men from holding or standing for political office, publicise awareness of these horrific crimes and change the attitude of men towards the women in their own country. They will also help victims prosecute their attackers and support them in their difficult time.
If a young Pakistani girl can be shot for wanting to be educated and be as strong as we have seen her on our tv screens, surely we can help by donating what we can afford to give to this, one of the most worthwhile campaigns that I have ever seen.
You will find the information you need on email@example.com.
If you have never heard of avaaz, I can reassure you that it is a highly regarded campaiging website and your money will be applied to this cause.
Please help women whose only crime is to be female!
