Cinebuzz times, UK:
Yasmin Begum, 40, was found with stab wounds at home in Globe Road, Bethnal Green, London, after failing to collect her children from school on Thursday, 24th March. A peaceful and respectful vigil was held in tribute to Yesmin Begum in front of Newham Town Hall, Stratford, on 3rd April 2022.
It’s 2022. Violence against Women and Girls is continuing. Women’s Voice, a steering Facebook page Administrator Shahina Chowdhury and Councillor Mumtaz Khan expressed their opposition against VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN and GIRLS. People who joined the vigil said their reflections about the movement: “Women and girls are not safe in their own homes.
More must be done to save, protect and safeguard women and girls.” The murder of Yesmin Begum took place during the day. Women and girls feel very unsafe and anxious going outside during the night and even during the day.
However, they expressed their fear of losing their life. Keeping themselves in the shoes of the late Yasmin Begum, they said, “We are all Yesmin Begum, there should never be another life taken.”
They also showed their concern of awaring of misogyny. They said , “Misogyny crimes against women must have tougher sanctions.” they also added, We must educate our society about how to tackle misogyny, and violence against women at a young age at schools, to steer into a non-misogynistic society.
While it is important to encourage more police powers and tougher sanction bills, government organisations must introduce more non-policing powers. This will help to ensure prevention measures rather than mourning over the victims.
