Problem

On 1st November 2017, a case was reported where a university student was being raped in Seksyen 7 Shah Alam. Following that, a similar incident had occurred  again at Seksyen 13 Shah Alam. Prior to these incidents, there have been more cases, and now they are on the rise. Several reports on social media claimed that attempts of stalking and groping occurred in Shah Alam area. Furthermore, the attempts of crime continues until now. This proves that criminals either from local or foreign nationalities are now brave enough to reveal their nasty acts. These criminals are targeting women as their prey. Fear and trauma are developing among women in Shah Alam, especially students as they feel that their surrounding is unsafe. Young women either staying, working or studying in Shah Alam lives in fear as they may be one of the victims any time and anywhere.

Solution

In order to tackle the issue, relying only on enforcement is not enough. Women need to have their own initiatives to protect themselves physically and mentally. This is the platform to develop the physical and mental necessities for them, to face the crisis. It encourages awareness among women on how to respond if they were caught in the middle of  any unfortunate circumstances.

The main content of the programme comprises of : 

1.  "Empowering Women, Preserve Dignity" talk and sharing session

A talk and sharing session on the topic of woman's safety and self-defense awareness by respective speakers.

2. 'Defense Against Crime' martial arts classes

A basic self-defense and martial art training guide by professional martial art trainer.

How is it measured?

Individual

I am currently an Interpersonal Communication student of UiTM Shah Alam and renting in Seksyen 7, Shah Alam. The reported cases really have a negative impact to me and most of my female colleagues. Fear and negative thoughts are surrounding us everyday. As a student and one of the current citizen in Shah Alam, I feel a deep feeling to help my fellow colleagues and also the citizens in Shah Alam. I hope that my effort can assist the women and scare off the criminals involved.
