Campaigning and Advocacy
Campaigning and lobbying is an important aspect of our fight against domestic violence. Our campaigns help us reach out to oppressed women and give them the message that they are not alone. Through persistent campaigns, we put pressure on stakeholders to take action against injustice.
Demeaning images of women in the media and other public arenas contribute towards anti-women attitudes. AWAG has always stood up against derogatory portrayals of women in public spaces and has campaigned for respect for women’s dignity.
Our past campaigns include:
Advocacy for improved wording in government resolutions
Sustained protests against media sensationalism in covering news of rapes and sati
Campaign to bring gender equality to school text books.
