BBC representative in Depilex Smile again
BBC representative in Pakistan Shahnaz spent a day at Depilex Smile again Foundation for filming a documentary focusing on violence against women. The history of violence against women is tied to the history of women being viewed as property and a gender role assigned to be subservient to men.
Elaborating on the issue Masarrat Misbah referred to the UN Declaration on the Elimination of Violence against Women (1993) stating that "violence against women is a manifestation of historically unequal power relations between men and women, which have led to domination over and discrimination against women by men and to the prevention of the full advancement of women, and that violence against women is one of the crucial social mechanisms by which women are forced into a subordinate position compared with men.”
Taking the issue forward the Depilex Smile again Foundation survivors narrated the stories of their miseries in support of the definition.
