The YWCA of Japan Supports the YWCA of India in its Work to End Violence against Women

The YWCA of Japan supports the initiative of the YWCA of India in bringing safety
and justice for women in India, given the brutal incident of gang-rape
and death that took place last December. As an action to support the
YWCA of India’s call to action, the YWCA of Japan has submitted a
letter to the Indian Embassy in Japan to request its implementation.

One of the YWCA offices in Hiroshima also issued a message of support
towards the YWCA of India, since they hosted a visit of delegates from the
YWCA of India last summer, during a peace program conducted by the YWCA
of Japan.
