Violence is wrong, violence against women and girls causes more deaths to women aged 15-44 than cancer, malaria, traffic accidents and war.

Letter to
President Mohammed Waheed Hassan
Prevent public flogging of 15 year old rape victim

As concerned global citizens, we call on you to do more to protect vulnerable women and children. We welcome your government’s initial intervention in the case of the 15-year-old rape victim, but real justice will only be delivered when you end the practice of public flogging in the Maldives, and change the law so that it better protects the victims of rape and sexual abuse.
