Everyday a new rape or domestic violence case comes up. And most of times, they involve women who can’t raise their voice. The Aurat March, which has everyone on their toes at the moment, is organised to help such women. The women and men who’ll be marching at the Aurat march will be doing so for the minor girl who gets raped and killed, for the wife who got beaten up, for the daughter who got married at 14, for the unpaid labour each and every women does.
