In the following our interview with Addisie Anshebo Executive Director of Walta Mothers and Children Health Care Organization located in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa. Addisie’s organization cares about mothers and children from poor areas and struggle against violence against women. Domestic violence is a form of brutality which is prevalent with women often being beaten by their husbands; forced to have sex; and obliged to give birth against their will. Women are consequently frequently exposed to STDs and HIV/AIDS.
