Silent March Against Gender-Based Violence
In the past five (5) years Grenada has been seeing an increase in abuse and violent acts to women and student-aged boys and girls. As of 2012, Grenada was ranked 3rd in Latin America and the Caribbean for female homicide (Ciara Byrne, Fast Company blog). Offenders appear to be given "slaps on the wrists" as it seems that inadequate penalties are meted out in order to deter such behaviour or protect victims.
As such, we, the concerned citizens of Grenada, humbly request that stiffer penalties and stricter sentences are meted out to the perpetrator of sexual and other domestic abusers.
Let us end this vicious cycle and protect our women and children.
