Hearing on violence against women


Briefing reporters on Friday, Donna Fernandes, representing Vimochana said, “This court is part of the process of the Courts of Women, a global movement that seeks to relook at rights and other notions of justice from the lives of women particularly from the South.”  She hoped that the Indian Court of women on dowry and related forms of violence against women will attempt to recover the lost language of justice.

 The four key events, to be held in this connection, are as follows: Women in Black (women and men dressed in black will stand at a public place to focus on issues through placards, banners and pamphlets); Court of women, receiving the testimonies ; Community conversations (group members and supporting organisations will plan a national-level campaign as a follow-up to the court) and Consultation on policies and legal reform.
The court is being held in collaboration with the Centre for Social Action, Christ University and Centre for Women’s Studies.
