TWA wish to sincerely thank and pay our respects to the victim of this terrible abuse, who has agreed to share her story with the world, a brave choice that TWA do not intend to waste; this case has opened our eyes to the continuing discrimination and violence faced by Tibetan women and the imperative for a clear resolution from parliament and resolute commitment to prevent future incidents.
