Violence Against Women

Domestic violence is a common occurrence. Many women are trapped in violent relationships. Working with self-help groups and anti-violence committees, we show how women survivors can address violence by going to the police, courts or welfare services, and by enlisting the support of leaders of the women’s groups movement.

We train women’s group leaders and anti-violence activists so that they can identify domestic and other forms of gender violence such as sex-selective abortion, dowry demands and child marriage. We have even trained police and justice officials to raise the profile of women’s rights and the laws that can protect them.

By bringing these issues out into the open, we work to ensure that perpetrators of violence against
women recognise that their actions are neither legally, nor culturally, acceptable.
