Despite changing values among the new generation in India, social views on domestic violence still have an anti-women bias. Surveys reveal that more than 50% of Indian males believe that domestic violence against women is occasionally justified. Despite cases of domestic abuse that are reported, a large number of cases continue to be unreported and marginalised.
At AWAG we undertake a holistic approach to tackle domestic abuse. We raise awareness about women’s rights, we campaign and lobby for pro-women policies and also support women to be self -reliant in economic and social terms.
