Survivors of sexual violence who choose to report need an environment that is empowering, non-intimidating and non-judgmental.
KNOW YOUR RIGHTS. TAKE ACTION. BE #READYTOREPORT
Amnesty International India, as part of the ‘Ready to Report’ campaign, coordinated the 16 days activism campaign in collaboration with a network of civil society organizations in Pune. The Campaign was called ‘Erase the Shame – Bindhaast Bol!’ aimed at eliminating the shame and stigma around sexual violence and its reporting.
On 25 November, the International Day for Elimination of Violence against Women, was the first day of a 16 day campaign against gender based violence. A series of events were planned in Bengaluru with diverse communities across the city, which included street theatre performances, film shows and discussions.
