Hence, Asuda for combating violence against women launched this press conference in order to perceive it. During the conference, Khanim Rahim Latif , Director of Asuda claimed that 'Our purpose is to keep fighting violence against women, in which, the kind of violence that are facing our women, is the cruelty of media, and the low status of women which has been covered by mass media, and also to highlight the root causes of patriarchy and false depiction of femininity" also Rahim stated that "The main point here is to perceive Media for their work and for the way they cover women status and their issues, but rather Media itself.”
