Anonymous asked: To address your original question regarding violence against women: I think that if you mean rape, say rape. If you mean partner abuse, say partner abuse. But those are the predominate types of violence that women do experience. Calling it "violence against women" serves as a stronger rallying cry than "fight rape" or "fight abuse" because it brings to the fore that this can happen to any woman. It can be a useful term. It does, however, alienate the men who have experienced this violence.
Thanks for your views.
