Millennium Fellowship Project: Increasing Domestic Violence during COVID-19
This project aims to create positive impact on our society which is to curb the increasing domestic violence against women during COVID-19. Violence against women is one of the main barriers to women’s empowerment and equal participation in society. However, it often goes unnoticed, undocumented and therefore unresolved. Violence against women is rooted in gender inequality. Especially amongst pandemic there has been an increase in frustration at the global level due to decline in the businesses and unemployment. Most of the domestic violence cases remain unreported due to stigma and shame attached to it. One of the elements that leads to this sort of violence is an outdated and discarded mentality that prevails in patriarchal society that women are somehow inferior to men. To get rid of patriarchy, there is a need of awareness in the society and especially in order to treat it from the grass root level, people must be aware of the fact that women are equal to men and must be bestowed with equal human rights. There are many laws for protection of rights of women but the problem lies in implementation.
