We are living in a world where women and children are always scared. Each and everyday we hear about a raped and murdered woman, or a missing child. What is more hurtful is that we do not know what pushes the perpetrators to keep taking lives.

The law now rules that a person who rapes and murders will spend his whole life in prison. I thought this would make men stop this bad behaviour towards women, but it seems like it made them worse.

During the festive season there are thousands of cases being reported at police stations about missing children and women. Some children get lost or killed for going out at night. Some women are killed and raped their partners. It is so painful that we cannot do anything to help them.


Tell us: What do you think can be done to end violence against women and children?
