The International Women Resource Network (IWRN) is thankful for the positive response by the government to legalise pepper spray.

The organization says that this move is the start of a larger suite of demands which would be forwarded to both Attorney-General Faris Al Rawi and Works and Transport Minister Rohan Sinanan by Monday.


IWRN stated that these demands are all aimed at conducting a comprehensive review of the systemic challenges that influence violence against women along with related solutions.

The organization would be launching a self-defence program for women very soon which includes proper use of pepper spray.
