Fighting acid attacks in Bangladesh – Monira Rahman and the “Acid Survivors Foundation”

"Domestic violence issues are neglected and overlooked because they are considered a private issue," says Monira Rahman when asked about the situation of women in Bangladesh. She has made it her prerogative to stop domestic violence and to help women who are victims. But Monira Rahman does not simply focus on any domestic violence – she helps care for and support the victims of acid attacks, which are a common and widespread way of humiliating and hurting women and their families in Bangladesh.
