  1. Yahh Fetry, thats guy. they really dumb, and they dont need very smart gl, they are somehow difficult to ……….

  2. Hi Fitri,
    Im in KFC in Bogor ,reading your newspaper article, after returning from the martial arts village of Cimande/West Java.
    Great article.Ive been reading about this topic in the newpapers whilst traveling through India and Nepal.It makes me vomit when I think of what men do to women.Its unbelievable how Indian men think.They told me that they watch blue movies and thats how western women act and its ok to rape.

    When I return to Katmandu, I will teach female self defense. That is the only way to tackle this problem

    You may want to educate yourself in this area ie read

    You can buy the dvds of female self defense ie
    ie dvd 7 & 8

    -Every Woman’s Guide to Being Safe…For Life Ebook
    -Senshido’s ‘Safe For Life’

    You have to listen to this:

    u could email
    to find out if they have a representative in Singapore

    I met a journalist in katmandu that has a similar passion to u ie womens rights

    maybe u can link up ie Savitri Rajali

    Ok , walk with confidence, be aware



  3. Dear Darren,

    Thank you for reading my writing. It is a pleasure to receive comments for my publication. Therefore, thank you for making my day.

    I have checked I think it is interesting. Singapore has several training center for women safety, including one in the country Women Association. However, what is often missed is telling people not to rape/assault because so far the campaign is mostly telling women not to get rape/assaulted like it was women’s fault. But effort all is appreciated, especially in preventive mechanism. Again, thank you for this.

    About Nepal fixer, I have checked her web and I must say she is impressive. I would surely contact her when I am required to conduct field research in Nepal. Not yet in the near future because of time and budget constrain (I’m doing my study as well now), but maybe one day!

    Good luck with your travels and keep safe!

    1. Hai Fela, untuk tulisan kamu, saya sarankan kamu baca buku tulisan Tami Amanda Jacoby, “Women in Zones of Conflict: Power and Resistance in Israel”, terbitan McGill-Queen’s University Press. Kalau sudah baca mungkin kita bisa berdiskusi lebih lanjut. Makasih dan salam buat mas Itok ya 🙂
