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.
Bermuda: man denies sexually assaulting teen.
Trinidad & Tobago: firefighter charged with raping two 10 year-old girls.
Guyana: media source reports that a woman’s allegedly unfaithfulness caused her to be stabbed and hospitalised. (Yes, the media is reporting on the alleged unfaithfulness of women who suffer intimate partner violence. I have noticed news sources in Barbados do the same thing too.)
