Worst person to seek advice from for domestic violence & women rights
My traumatized cousin and aunt who were enduring years and years of domestic violence (physical, mental and financial abuse) finally were brave enough to take a step towards stopping this violence in order to have much needed peace of mind and they went to her to get her advice to come out of it. Instead of sympathising with their situation and giving them the right advice of complaining to the police (bear in mind this is domestic violence and Marital rape situation), she gave them the most disturbing advice to sort this out and asked the daughter to stay out of it (Remember that the abuser, assualts, harasses the mother in front of daughter and vice versa). This woman wasn’t even able to answer the basic questions of the daughter who asked her “how can I protect my mother and myself from this monster” instead she asked not to interfere into her parents life and that the traumatised daughter is old enough to know her own rights!! Things are good now because my aunt chose to complain to the police however it took another episode of extreme violence for her to go ahead as she wasn’t informed of her rights by this lawyer. This could have been prevented in the first place if this lawyer had directed us towards women’s baisc rights. She is a facilitator towards my aunt and her sisters agony. I humbly request all who wish to seek her advice to read this and logically think through if you aspire to go ahead specifically in matters related to women’s rights. Disclaimer: I didn’t want to give one star also but seems like it’s a requisite here.
