Women: Everyday our advocates are put on the firing line, many of us enduring rape and death threats but we do not capitulate to male rule. We stay the course so that future generations do not have to fear rape while never quite articulating that fear. Our victim-centric focus and most importantly our gynocentric focus makes us 100% dedicated to female victims of male violence.
This is an uncommon focus as many organizations believe in the ‘equality model’ whereby by males and females are seen as equal and not provided with more care than the other. Male violence against females affects females disproportionately, with femicide at high rates, acid burnings a daily nightmare and rape occurring every 6 seconds and even infant rape becoming more common, we raise awareness and risk our own lives in the process.
“In order to escape accountability for his crimes, the perpetrator does everything in his power to promote forgetting. If secrecy fails, the perpetrator attacks the credibility of his victim. If he cannot silence her absolutely, he tries to make sure no one listens.” ~ Judith Lewis Herman
