YOGYAKARTA - "Tjoet Njak Dien" Foundation, a non-governmental organization working on women's issues will hold a seminar about "Violence against Women in East Timor".

The event will be held at the University Club, Gajah Mada University, on Saturday, September 19. There will be women speakers from East Timor also.

The foundation has conducted research in East Timor and found evidence of systematic rapes against women, an issue which has never been acknowledged and taken care of by the government.

Organizers believe that it is now time for actions to be taken to remedy the situation.
