Ninel Conde and Elisa Dohmanne are not just two women who have had their lives turned upside down by a series of events that have changed their lives.
They are also the founders of the campaign, Ninel’s Law, which has been fighting to end domestic violence in Indonesia since 2005.
Ninel Condes case began in the early 2000s when she was a 15-year-old student at the University of Perak.
After a year she started to notice that her boyfriends behaviour was different, she would sometimes leave his house without telling him what was going on.
She began to complain to the university and she filed a complaint with police.
They told her she was being investigated and her boyfriend was being charged with domestic violence.
Ninel and her parents filed a criminal complaint against him and he was arrested in 2009.
Ninels boyfriend, a fellow student, was charged with her own crimes.
Ninels boyfriend was later found guilty and sent to jail for two years.
Nineli decided to launch the campaign in an effort to help end domestic abuse in Indonesia.
Ninela is an international expert on domestic violence and an expert on child sexual abuse.
She has written extensively about child sexual exploitation, including for the BBC, CNN, and the Guardian.
In Indonesia, where a woman is raped every 2.6 minutes, Ninels law was one of the first laws to criminalise domestic violence by forcing perpetrators to pay a fine of RM2,000.
Ninelson has also called for a change in the law, which she says is “simply not enough”.
In 2017, the law was finally amended to ensure that perpetrators were given 10 years in jail if they are convicted.
Ninerlis law has been in place since then.
But she says it is not enough.
“I have witnessed some of the most horrendous violence that I have ever witnessed in my lifetime.
It is something that I would never want to see happen again,” she said.
The government has recently introduced a law which allows for a person who has committed domestic violence to be charged with a more serious offence.
In November, the Indonesian Supreme Court agreed with Ninels request to overturn the previous law, and she is appealing against the decision.
Ninemes Law is an organisation that works to end the abuse of women in Indonesia and she says this new law is an important step forward.
Ninela says she has witnessed some disturbing acts of domestic violence, such as when her boyfriend threatened to kill her parents if she did not comply with his demands for money.
She says her parents did not intervene.
Nineli also believes that the new law has done more harm than good by making it illegal for Indonesian women to make public complaints of domestic abuse.
“If a woman goes to the police, they do not even know the truth,” she explained.
“There are many cases where a victim of domestic assault does not come forward because they have already been abused.”
Ninels Law is a campaign which is funded by the Australian Foundation for Women (AFWF), an organisation which supports women who suffer from domestic violence who are also survivors of sexual abuse, and is dedicated to ending violence against women and girls.
It works with organisations to support survivors of domestic and sexual violence and provides support to them and their families.
The organisation is also working to end a criminal law that criminalises domestic violence perpetrated by someone who is not the perpetrator.
It aims to reduce the impact of the criminalisation of domestic abusers by empowering women to report violence, and to have access to justice and support.
