This year's International Women's day focuses on ending violence against women. At the United Nations headquarters in New York, government representatives and activists have gathered for the largest international meeting on ending violence against women. According to Michelle Bachelet, UN Women Executive Director, "In 2013 women and girls continue to suffer high levels of discrimination, violence, and exclusion. The right of a woman to live free of violence depends on a strong chain of justice."
But we have a plan for ending violence against women. In April 2013, together with PAJHRA we're launching our project in Assam to advance the rights of Adivasi women through the establishment of a community-based legal network. Together we'll work to increase access to basic health services, monitor food distribution and ensure women's participation in the decision making process.
