The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is an important moment for all of us to participate and support the movement against all forms of violence against women in both the domestic and the public sphere.
Based on the Annual Note of the National Commision of Women (Komnas Perempuan) in 2013, we knew there had been about 280 000 cases of violence against women. The number of sexual violence cases is about 5600, increased from about 4300 cases in 2012. This means that, every 3 hours, there are at least two women who have experienced sexual violence.
Building a world without violence, where all human beings including women and girls, can obtain justice for their rights are ideals that we should strive for. But without awareness and support of all elements of society and government, then these ideals are difficult to realize.
On the occasion of (the 16 Days campaign), host Noor Chasanah of JRKDem presents the results of an interview with Mrs.Titim Fatmawati from the organization SAPUAN (Friends of Women and Children). Mrs Fatmawati shares SAPUAN’s activities for the campaign “One day, one voice” on the 16 days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence with the theme "Our resources, our rights, our life or the right to sustainable resource".
