Woman: Oppressed Sufferer or Willing Victim?
KEVIN & HILDA PROLIFE AWARD: ESSAY COMPETITION

-provides an in-depth look at the issue.
-discusses viable means to address and prevent such violence.
-explores if existing institutions and agencies are adequate
-suggests a forum for the redressal of grievances, and the eradication of injustice towards women.
Attractive prizes for first, second and third places.
