Soca/Freestyle King Ian "Bunji Garlin" Alvarez sent out a "Defend the Women" challenge to all men in T&T.

In a three minute thirty-five-second video sent via social media, Alvarez said that T&T's women are under pressure and endure serious problems.

Garlin said most men hide behind social media platforms, such as Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to "bad up women" but instead those same men need to man up and defend them.

"We need to teach some of them males to be men too. Let us defend the women. Nobody say it is going to be easy, it is supposed to be easy because its our women.

We have to defend them. If you going out the road and you see a man roughing up a woman in the public…soldier rally and get help because that woman could die right there," Alvarez said.

He added that every time "these characters" (referring to men who abuse women) escape "they are moving closer to you aunts, niece, mother and all females in your family…don't wait for this to hit home then for all to react and it too late. let us defend all women now."
