1 in 10 women in Singapore experiences physical violence in her lifetime.
6 in 10 women suffer repeated victimisation.
More than 1 case a week reaches AWARE's Sexual Assault Befrienders Service.
51% of the respondents polled in a survey believed that violence in the family 'is a private affair'.
Join us in this Forum Theatre Play and explore the issues of violence against women. The play is created and performed by a group of passionate volunteers under the directorial leadership of Li Xie.
It was produced from scratch during an intensive workshop with the volunteers in April 2013, and will be a cornerstone of We Can! – AWARE's national campaign to end violence against women. Between June 2013 and Dec 2014, the team will embark on a Forum Theatre Tour, taking the play to communities around Singapore, inviting people to become 'Change Makers' – men, women, boys and girls who commit to taking steps towards ending violence against women in their own lives.
