One Day with Walking Into Walls

Walking Into Walls is an amazing violence against women project run by four hardworking young women from Barbados and Antigua and Barbuda.

They provide daily links to stories about violence against women and girls in the Caribbean.

In this post I’ll share with you all the links they’ve posted today so that you can get an understanding of the extent and nature of violence against women and child sexual abuse in the region.

    I can add another from Belize as so many don’t get reported at all. A man assaults a girl at the club because she was dancing with someone else and he also assaults another woman in the process because of being so enraged. After causing the dance session to end prematurely, he continued to assault the girl on the street until Police showed up on the scene.
