The seminar on domestic violence was indeed a success, with more than the anticipated number of participants attending – from jawatankuasa kampung, representatives from BN component parties, representatives from schools, colleges, various government agencies and various NGOs. My only regret is, I wish more men attended. No point creating awareness amongst women on their rights whatsoever if the men aren’t listening…
Anyway, am not in writing mood/mode, so I’ll just share some pics ok?

*Couldn’t get a better angle for the 2 pics above as I couldn’t move from that spot – I was taking care of the powerpoint presentation for both talks.
Forum on the roles of the various agencies. Panel consisted of representatives from the police, welfare department and jabatan agama Islam.
Last but not least, lunch after the seminar – gulai pisang, ayam masak kicap, sambal udang, ulam-ulam + sambal belacan.
