WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE RE­CENT AT­TEN­TION TO­WARDS SEX­UAL VI­O­LENCE? I THINK IT IS GREAT THAT PEO­PLE BOTH WITHIN AC­TIVIST CIR­CLES AND OUT­SIDE OF THEM ARE START­ING TO PAY AT­TEN­TION TO THE LEV­ELS OF VI­O­LENCE THAT WOMEN EX­PE­RI­ENCE IN IN­DONE­SIA. THERE ARE MANY AC­TIVISTS WHO HAVE BEEN WORK­ING HARD ON THIS TOPIC FOR YEARS – DECADES, EVEN – SO I HOPE THE RE­CENT EX­PLO­SION OF NA­TIONAL AT­TEN­TION ON CASES LIKE YY WILL HELP THEIR CAUSE.

IN YOUR OPINION, WHAT CAN BE DONE TO PRE­VENT SUCH AC­TIONS?
