Sunila Abeysekera on One Billion Rising
Sri Lanka needs to rise. The injustice is too deeply set– it’s time we snapped out of the apathy and made some noise.
Investigations of the Wijerama gang rape victim is against the victim. Yes, you read that right. It was reported that the police suspect she’s a sex-worker and so her claim of being raped has got to be false. Yes, that’s the logic of those who have been appointed to protect us. Where’s the justice for women? Double that with ineffective laws to protect women, and you’d see that women in Sri Lanka are not safe.
Sunila Abeysekera spoke to Beyond Borders on why Sri Lanka should join One Billion Rising.
