Power of Technology to help us fight family and domestic violence

The Deputy Secretary-General of the UN Jan Eliasson has spoken of harnessing the power of technology to prevent violence against women and girls. Case in point was of the young Pakistani girl Malala Yousafzai who was shot by Taliban for going to school. Thousands of tweets were recorded from around the globe after she spoke at a Youth Assembly held in the UN.
