Breaking the Chain Of Violence

The All Women’s Action Society (AWAM) held its third White Ribbon Run at Padang Merbok in Kuala Lumpur recently.  The event attracted some 1,000 participants and they successfully brought home the point that gender-based violence (GBV) and violence against women (VAW) are not solely women’s rights issues rather human rights issues that all should be involved in addressing them. The event’s theme “The Story of a Generation” provided the platform for men and boys of all ages and walks of life to come together to break a “Chain of Violence”, symbolising the breaking down of the violence and varying burdens that women have to deal with on a daily basis.
