Did you know that there is a Facebook page called Goats of Bangladesh modeled on Humans of New York? Well, even we didn’t, till Sruthijith KK informed us of the same at his session at #WIN15.

Skim through any newspaper or switch on any news channel, and you will find an alarming number of sexual abuse cases, some by strangers and some by people close to the victim. That’s not even the worst news. The actual tragedy is that only 1 in 100 cases of sexual violence are actually reported in India.
The odds are stacked high against women safety, but as they say, knowledge is power. One of the most effective ways to nip sexual violence is to increase awareness among women about their rights. The light of knowing their rights will drive out the darkness of fear that they live in. Amnesty International and BlogAdda bring you the #KnowYourRights activity.
