SAN to Portray Violence against Women

In an effort to begin a dialogue on violence against women and girl children in the South Asian community, South Asian Network’s Awaz – Voices Against Violence Unit is producing Yoni Ki Baat. This will be a groundbreaking play that will highlight the voices of women and girls in Southern California through a play and subsequently open dialogue with the community members in attendance. A SAN press release says:
We have worked on domestic violence, child abuse including child sexual abuse, elder abuse, human trafficking, sexual harassment in the workplace for the past 5 years with over 800 women and children, etc. However, the silence and taboo around these issues has not allowed us to create a safe space for victim’s to come forward to seek services and hold their abusers accountable. Often times when women come forward they are blamed for brining negative attention to their community or told that they are responsible for breaking up the family.
We want to create a community that allows for all our voices to be heard.
