GENDER BASED VIOLENCE SURVIVORS The voice of Gender Based Violence survivors has long been ignored and tagged the voice of weakness, they have been neglected and left alone in emotional and physical pains, hurt, loneliness, emptiness and hopelessness. For those who dare to speak up in some cases face mockery, doubt, and at times punishment, they face all this because we are not even aware that this survivors are even stronger than we are, they go through emotional and physical torture and still hold it together to face the already difficult world. The fact that we as a society have turned deaf ears to their voices and not see the need for action have caused these survivors to hold back to themselves and to the awful painful experiences, feeling they have no confidential channel to voice out their pains. Once we start supporting, speaking up and paying attention to things that really matter like the mental and physical state of the people around us then that is when we will start portraying the true meaning of humanity. With that been said, the big question is, when is the time to act right and advocate for the protection and social well-being of people around us? When is the right time to be a channel through which survivors can voice out what they feel without being scared of judgment, negative sentiments or been victim-shamed? And when are we going to take advantage of technology and use the available tool; we have to combat this depravity?
