Dear Shahadat, thank you for sharing Tania's story. It may be sad but it gives hope to victims of rape and other forms of atrocities. If she can read this message, I wish to tell her that she  is an inspiration and a good example of a woman who was trampled but did something positive about her situation. She should not stop fighting her cause and to continue correcting the ills of society such as drug pushing.

And to you my friend, keep sounding off the silent voices of victims. Many times, they need a help from other people. I salute you!

Hi Shaddat: I hope this finds you well. Thank you so much for sharing Tania's story. It is women like you and Tania that paves the way for us, for justice, for accountability, and above all for the peace and security of our communities. Thank you for taking the initiative to visit the town and interview the commissioner, despite the risks involved. It is also a wonderful idea to create a unity program for victims-I believe this will help other women speak up more, feel they are not alone. And perhaps help in their healing processe. I applaud you and Tania. Thank you!

Hi Shahadat! I really appreciate you taking the time to post Tania's story. She is a very brave person. I cannot imagine what she has gone through, and yet she has the courage to report her offenders' crimes to the police. I hope she is doing okay... There is so much impunity in the world - in every country - so it is heartening to read a story where someone ends up where they belong. Thank you again for sharing, and all my best wishes to you, and to Tania.

Hello Shahadat - What a brave brave woman Tania is and God bless all the Tania's of the world, resilient and courageous. What a shame she was not put into witness protection.

Thank God all the criminals are in jail.

Shahadat,  

Thank you for sharing Tania's story, for posting her picture, and for the advocay work that you and your team did on her behalf.  It is women like Tania that are continuing to break the silence that rape is supposed to create.  How courageous of her that she filed the police case.  

Creating a unity program for survivors is critical.  I am an educator, activist and artist in the areas of women's spirituality and global leadership.  Last week I participated in our local "Take Back the Night" event during which there is a Survivor's Circle.  Women and men who have survived sexual assault are invited to create a circle within a larger circle of supportive "witnesses".  There are 2 sexual assault advocates who sit with them and facilitate the process.  After each person tells their story an advocate says "Thank for sharing your story.  We honor you."  I am a survivor and hearing those words...especially "We honor you" always moves my heart and strengthens my spirit.  Perhaps a ceremony like this could be created for the survivors of sexual assualt like Tania.

I will share your story of Tania's experience and your work with my students.

Thank you so much for YOU and what you are doing.

Dear Shahadat,

Thank you for sharing Tabia's story.  Though it is heartwrenching to hear she was retailiated against by those despicable criminals, she was not thwarted  - or silenced! It takes a very strong and passionate woman to stand up to such attrocities in her community; to try to make it a better place for all. 

Please tell her she is a hero to many and make sure gets the good care she so deserves.

My best,
