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
The Railway Protection Force (RPF), Western Railways in Mumbai worked with us to promote and ensure women passengers’ right to safety. In June, the first session with 30 senior RPF officials was held, on how to effectively handle complaints of sexual harassment on trains and railway platforms. The Western Railways will play information jingles at several stations in Mumbai, including Dadar, Malad, Lower Parel, Bandra, Andheri, Borivali and Santa Cruz.
Women from different communities in Yelahanka Satellite Ward came together to discuss the formation for a Mahile Jagrutha Vedike - a committee at the ward level to support women to report sexual violence in a safe, unbiased and responsive environment and to raise awareness about women’s rights related to sexual violence.
