    very nice and informative article. It is very true that the time is right provided the governments provide financial and political support as well. on the public side, i really like the movement by the young people trying to create more public sphere for women and challenging social norms/expectations.

    Well written blog. However, if we really consider our environment it is very difficult for a woman to raise voice against domestic violence even i have spectated lot of educated family even practicing this just to show men's power but the fact is that women doesn’t found any place if they go against it. Ultimately, truth is that they have to live with same family for years and years and even for whole life. The police station we are talking about absurd. They even do not pay attention to murder, how come the y will pay attention to this.? Establishing crisis center is good thing, but the area we really need to work on is education for boys and girls. Awareness will automatically resolve problems. Telling people that what your rights are there is good but finding the solution which is really impacting their live is the better approach.
