IWRN: Stop killing our women

Thursday, March 23, 2017 - 12:30

The International Women's Resource Network (IWRN) has issued a warning that if Trinidad and Tobago's social and judicial systems are not reviewed quickly and also further strengthened to address the country’s social ills, society will begin to see murders as “normal.”

The IWRN has issued a statement extending condolences to the families of 23-year old Sharlene Somai and 65-year old Petra Manwarring who were both found dead today in seemingly unfortunate circumstances.

The organisation pleading with women in particular, who may be facing domestic challenges with the potential for danger, to at least share the details with a close relative and/or friend which would perhaps assist in alleviating what we are currently experiencing.

The organisation adds that there are pockets of anger pervading the society at varying levels, and that anyone who is challenged with such emotions, should reach out for support where necessary.

The IWRN, an NGO headquartered in Trinidad and Tobago, was established primarily to provide support services and mechanisms for young girls, women and families, in local, regional and international communities who are affected by domestic violence, HIV-Aids and other abusive –type situations.
