Roing, Aug 22: Women need to understand that the ‘Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act’ was made to safeguard women against domestic violence and not misuse it for a personal act of revenge, stated Nabam Yahi Tad, Vice Chairperson (APSCW) during a One Day Legal Awareness Programme held at Dambuk.

She advocated for discouraging polygamy saying that a woman/mother only can convince her daughter not to marry an already married person and become a home breaker. We have to understand the needs of the changing times and not allow the practice of polygamy. Nabam Yahi Tad also enjoined all to register their marriages.
