Our Sisters - Candlelight Vigil in memory of Damini.
India it's time for change
Mahatma Gandhi once said "The day a woman can walk freely on the roads of India, that day we can say Indiahas achieved Independence."
Unfortunately, in his eyes India is yet to achieve independence. Crime against women in India is rising; there were24,000 reported cases of rape in 2011 with a 9.2% rise over the previous year. We know many of you have been angered and upset over the outrage that has spread across in India. We have teamedup with the Big Hug Foundation to hold a Candlelight Vigil called 'Save Our Sisters' for the Delhi Gang Rape victim and forwomen in India who are assaulted on a daily basis. We hope this opportunity will allow you to pay respect and make yourvoice heard.
