Saudi campaign against domestic violence

The caption reads: "Some things can't be covered; Fighting women's abuse together."

While I try to keep most of my blog about business issues, occasionally there is something that is so significant that it deserves a few words. Way to go Saudi Arabia! Today the King Khalid Foundation launched a very provocative and very powerful campaign against domestic violence. This is such step forward for the Kingdom. Now does this mean domestic violence will end, no. But at least it acknowledges that it does exist.

However, protecting women and children goes way beyond just starting a campaign. Making sure the issue is really addressed now becomes two-fold. 1.) That the government does set-up the proper channels to make sure that they do help and protect those who are abused. (But please take note, in America and other Western countries, it is commonly claimed & believed that we are stellar in doing this... but believe me, there is nothing stellar about our own systems!!!) and 2.) That women need to SPEAK UP! This will be a huge issue as it goes against the cultural grain of their society as a whole. Many believe that what has been done will be done, so if the cycle is to stop, it is going to mean a lot of change within a culture that has not historically supported women to talk against their husbands or fathers.

We will see how things change and if indeed this is a great step forward for the Saudi women. It is a rocky road ahead of them, but if the change is embraced by the government, Royal family and by the citizens of the Kingdom themselves, it will not be a step forward, it will be a giant leap...Insha'Allah!

My husband and i felt absolutely lucky that Louis managed to conclude his survey because of the ideas he obtained in your web page. It's not at all simplistic to just be giving for free guides which often a number of people have been trying to sell. We realize we've got the writer to appreciate for this. All the illustrations you've made, the easy web site navigation, the relationships you can make it possible to create - it is mostly powerful, and it is aiding our son in addition to our family feel that that content is excellent, which is certainly pretty important. Thanks for all!

That was on a Wednesday. Two days prior she apologized because she knew she would be sick on my birthday. She had what appeared to be the beginning of a cold. I am confidant she had no idea just how sick she was going to be.

There is no domestic violence in Saudi Arabia, however, they have strict rules against crime such as murder. They did it because they knew about Islam and it is written in holy books to give such punishment to those who commit such crimes.
