In partnership with The Asia Foundation, CSR has been working towards making a safer space for women not only in public spaces but within their homes too. In the undertaking of this formidable goal, we have taken to discussing and actively participating in advocating the Act for women to learn and know their rights.

Through this event, we aim to review the work done across the platform of experts from various organizations, individuals, men’s collective groups, activists and other stakeholders towards their effort in the fight for prevention of violence against women and challenging regressive stereotypes prevalent in society.

We are looking forward to this conference – do watch this space for regular updates!
