"Enough!" by ruthmouch


8 women died in Lebanon in under 2 months during December and January. Appalling statistics. Most died as a result of domestic violence. The Law is heavily skewed in favour of men.
KAFA is a non governmental organisation, and it literally means "Enough!".
The Kafa protest was held in front of the Parliament building as a call to representatives to make amendments to Law 293 regarding protection of women against domestic violence. Within the shadow of both a church and a mosque it was also a demand that that "the clerics have no authority over the law under the pretext of maintaining the privacy of the family".
Each red statuette told a woman's story, and of her untimely death, there were 30 statuettes.
That is very very sad.

Oh dear that is a very bad statistic, what is it with these men that they like to dominate!

A hard reality to face that there are so many places in the world that still undervalue the importance of a woman's strengths and her place in society. A moving photo to bring awareness , Ruth
