I would definitely love to join this programme when it comes to the women, as a female if myself if i wont be respect and fighting against the rights of females then it feels like a shame on myself. Women have each and every right and they are supposed to raise the voice against each and every injustice they face.

Thank you all for signing this if you could, I don't know why it was routing to a yahoo message, other then the original was from a Yahoo account. I didn't submitted that page but rather the actual petition and after submission I had checked as I try to with each submission and it was fine then something went very wrong. I am so very sorry and will try to correct this with another entry as soon as possible. This is a cause I am and I know many of you are also passionate about. Please forgive the faux pax. Again my deepest thanks, for your patience and understanding.

Thanks Electra as this link above also directed me to my yahoo mail.
The statistics are terrible.....the women suffer so in the world. I have heard too many stories of how women suffer under the hands of men, suffer from their Fathers, their brothers, boyfriends, husbands, men in power who inflict themselves on women in the work goes on and on. It's a wonder the figure is 30% of women who have managed to escape all forms of abuse, I'd think it even lower.

Great cause and one that fills my heart with emotion! I have known firsthand with a sister and 2 very dear friends the suffering from a mean, cruel, dominating male. I will sign as soon as I find a way to get to the petition!!!! Excellent post! Thanks Kit...will be checking back to see if the link clears up!
