#OrangeTheWorld - A thread on reproductive control, coercion and entrapment 🧵

As a #trapped populations scholar, I have lately spent a lot of time thinking about reproductive #coercion, #control and #entrapment. (i)
The #familycourts appear to fail to understand, acknowledge and interrupt these dynamics of #coercivecontrol in their current system. (ii)
Many perpetrators of #coercivecontrol will already begin to put pressure on or introduce the idea of a child during the early love bombing phase. (iii)

Violence against women and girls (VAWG) is one of the most widespread, persistent and devastating human rights violations in our world today and remains largely unreported due to the impunity, silence, stigma and shame surrounding it. Image
In general terms, it manifests itself in physical, sexual and psychological forms, encompassing:

- intimate partner violence (battering, psychological abuse, marital rape, femicide);
- sexual violence and harassment (rape, forced sexual acts, unwanted sexual advances,...
...child sexual abuse, forced marriage, street harassment, stalking, cyber- harassment);
- human trafficking (slavery, sexual exploitation);
- female genital mutilation; and
- child marriage

Take a stand, speak out and report violence against women and girls!

1/ I saw levels trending, when I followed the story, I was heartbroken. Revenge porn is a tool of emotional destruction & abuse. Shashi be strong & take legal action. My advise to young people is to stop recording intimate moments & sending nude pictures to partners. #16Days
2/ Shashi has been strong & told her side of the story. I can relate with the pain she is going through. A lot of women go through similar cases of abuse especially when they want to end an abusive relationship. They are stalked, emotionally & physically abused #16DaysOfActivism
3/ It is even worse when the woman has got a public profile, they get threatened on how their public profiles will be tarnished, if there are sextapes on how they will be exposed, if a politician how they are going to be painted black, etc. Women are always at the losing end.

🧵 Today @ManduReid gave her key note Conference speech to a staggering 110 people.

This must be a record for the smallest conference speech ever.

It is with profound pain that we tweet this.
A speech high in emotion & platitudes, low in content.

Huge claims, included ‘bringing down Borris’s government. Yes really.

Since last conference, full of promise around donut economy, Black maternal deaths & more have amounted to nothing.

No campaigns. Zero.
This conference *should have been a vibrant conference celebrating campaign gains- celebrating how motions on paper are transformed into real change.

It could have been a diverse dynamic hub of women recruited during the campaign process….

It's the start of #16DaysOfActivism - a global campaign to end gender-based violence.

The #GE15 manifestos had 3 proposals on gender-based violence.

In conjunction with #16Days, the govt can commit to adopting these proposals right away.

Some recommendations:👇
(1) Enact the anti-stalking law #MakeStalkingACrime

This was in PN's manifesto, but all coalitions would agree. Dewan Rakyat already passed the Bill, but not the Senate.

Govt could commit to: A) pass the Bill as is; or B) improve the Bill (wao.org.my/tabling-of-law…) then pass it
(2) Implement the Anti-Sexual Harassment Act

BN and PN both committed to this. PH surely agrees. As the Act is already law, the government has to implement it.

The question is, what can the government do right away, to ensure successful implementation?

For years, PHR has worked to end impunity for sexual violence and to bring justice to survivors of these terrible crimes.

This International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, we double down in that fight. #16Days
According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 30% of women worldwide have been subjected to either physical and/or sexual violence in their lifetime – a traumatizing experience with long-lasting adverse health consequences.
PHR’s Program on Sexual Violence in Conflict Zones uses rigorous science and trauma-informed approaches to address violence. phr.org/issues/sexual-…

Violence against women & girls is the most pervasive human rights violation worldwide.

More than 5 women/girls are killed by family EVERY HOUR.

Tomorrow is International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, & is the start of the 16 Days of Activism.

#IDEVAW2022
While women can indeed be agents of patriarchy, and participate in this violence, the vast, vast majority of violence against women is perpetrated by men. This is why many feminists insist on calling it “MVAWG”: male violence against women and girls. macleans.ca/opinion/lets-f…
“Violence against women” sounds like a passive phenomenon that happens out of the aether. Even worse, “gender-based violence” doesn’t even name the group affected—women. “Male violence against women and girls” names the problem and those affected.

The focus of #16DaysofActivism2021 to End Gender-Based Violence is femicide: the killing of a woman or a girl by a man because of her gender, sometimes also used to refer to the epidemic of women killed by men in intimate settings 16dayscampaign.org/wp-content/upl… feministgiant.com/p/essay-the-te…
If terrorism means politically-motivated violence intended to scare us into changing the way we behave, then surely femicide is terrorism. Patriarchy is the ideology; cis men are the terrorists.

#16Days
Unless we impose on societal consciousness just how quotidian violence against women is and how it is ordinary men who commit it, it will continue to benefit ordinary men. It does.

Say it. Violence against women is everyday; ordinary men commit it.

They said she couldn’t fly in a jet because her "female parts would be damaged."

“It was quite a thrill breaking the sound barrier at 100 feet...”
They said she couldn't complete the same basic training. They said she couldn’t work on the operations staff. They said she couldn't work in Intelligence. They said she couldn’t work overseas. They said many things.

She proved them wrong.
