MY SISTER’S KEEPER

This year at Colour, we are once again highlighting the important issue of domestic and family violence (DFV). We recognise this important issue impacts all people, regardless of age, sex or culture.

As a Sisterhood, we take a stand against violence against women and children in any form, and when the statistics indicate that 1 in 3 women have faced violence during their lifetime, we all need to understand the issues better and respond safely with empathy and considered action.

The Covid-19 pandemic which came to the world’s attention in early 2020, has whether we like it or not, defined the landscape of our lives for the past two years. Words like lockdown, isolation, pandemic, face masks, quarantine have become part of our everyday vocabulary. But another pandemic has run parallel to this, what experts call the ‘shadow pandemic’; that of the rise of gender-based violence.

Gender-based violence takes many forms: from domestic and family violence, online violence, sexual violence to human trafficking, child marriage and FGM.

Learning about these serious issues and knowing where to get help can make a significant difference to the lives of women in our world.
