Report of Event:
A total of 75 beneficiaries( largely women) of NGO’s like Aasra, Alert India(Aastha Project),Sosva, Children of the world, Stree Mukti Sanghatna, Special cell for Women, Sharan, Udaan, Prerna, Maharashtra Mahila Parishad, Saathi, IWSA,Women’s Graduate union and several others attended and benefited from the sessions conducted by Nausheen and Petrina from Majlis. As part of their ‘Know Your Rights’ effort, Nausheen started off by giving a brief on the various laws enacted for the protection of women including the domestic violence act. It was heartening to see women open-up about their problems in the subsequent interactive group sessions which involved case studies and problem solving. Thereafter the session was thrown open for Q& A. At the legal aid camp, a large number of women had problems to narrate and sought help from the experts present. In order to continue this effort a suggestion was put forward to Majlis to deploy one legal representative in Navi Mumbai( to be hosted by one NGO or NGO forum) once in two weeks probably on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays between 2 and 5 pm so that a larger number of women could benefit. Majlis representative Nausheen said that they would extend all cooperation to this effort and would work on the modalities after discussing it with their managing committee. Women’s graduate Union beneficiaries performed streetplays relating to women centric issues like dowry harassment, gender inequality, systemic failure to protect women and their rights, spousal abuse and several others in order to create an awareness among the general population. These plays were performed at five locations in Navi Mumbai. Three enactments were performed at Kopri, Kairane and Turbhe stores, one was performed at Jhulelal Mandir and the final enactment was performed at the BEST/NMMT bus depot at Vashi. Water,Tea and biscuits were served to all those present.
Hope this will suffice,
