The Preventable Disaster
"First of all, I think the media has a huge role to play," Christiane says. "I think those programs that have been aired and that have won some awards, they make a huge difference in raising public awareness."
"I think that we have to be aware, in our communities, of what's going on," she continues. "Neighborhoods shouldn't be afraid—if they see something untoward, if they hear that something untoward is going on—to report it even if it turns out to be nothing. It's better to be safe than sorry. We need to lobby for more shelters for these victims. We need to lobby internationally for much more strict and tough law enforcement."
