MWIA deplores the stoning death of Farzana Parveen
Once again women are considered a disposable commodity in so many places around the world. MWIA deplores the stoning death of Farzana Parveen in the name of tradition and honour in Pakistan. What is honourable about killing a pregnant women who married a man of her choice, thus irritating her family members who felt she should marry her cousin? MWIA is developing a Training Manual on Eliminating Violence Against Women and Children. The need for a plan to empower women who are victims of violence and provide them with the necessary resources is made evident by this senseless killing.
