The sharing session was held at Café 934 in Serusop and presented by an invited speaker, Community Development Officer from the Community Development Department (JAPEM) of the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports Nurul Nazurah binti Jaya.

The event aimed to provide exposure to women on the ways to recognise domestic violence such as the five types of abuse, laws that have been issued by the court and the steps that can be taken.

Participants also had the opportunity to ask questions from Nurul Nazurah.

The Mawar Association gave participants the opportunity to share their own experiences and share advice.
