Domestic Violence is a prevailing evil in many societies, and it has only festered over time. Cis women, trans men and women and non binary individuals are common targets of domestic violence. A large number of intimate partner abuse that goes unreported is that against cis men. Popular to contrary belief cis men also account for a substantial chunk of victims of domestic violence.
31 percent of trans and intersex individuals self-identified as domestic abuse survivors according to a study in 2013.
It is estimated that 35 per cent of women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence or sexual violence by a non-partner (not including sexual harassment) at some point in their lives.
Along came Covid19 Pandemic and the world was thrown into Lockdown. Studies showed incidence of domestic violence rising as victims were forced to stay at home with their abusers. Unemployment and hunger along with many other frustrations of the pandemic also added to the problem, worsening mental health of the abusers, especially where individuals were dependent on their counterparts financially, and further damaging the emotional and physical well being of the victims.
Our purpose, is to unleash a movement around the Globe that advances the rights of victims and survivors by ensuring awareness and spreading education about various aspects of domestic violence- ranging from medicolegal aid to self-defense. We believe this is a step towards empowering all underpowered communities and a greater quality of life for all.
