WE – as a platform – wishes to take a 360 view of the society we live in. We wish to address issues pertaining to how women are treated, their role in society, the evolution of our society and several other issues, aiming to get closer to the genesis of today. It is a huge task but we are not deterred by time, the complexities of our culture, our history or even contemporary problems. WE wishes to take steps not as a movement but as a solution provider that has inclusion at its core.
On February 7th 2013 WE brought together minds, protagonists, law makers, writers, observers and social analysts, among others, to address who we are, what our society is all about and why is gender equality not a matter of significance. That marked the beginnings of Woman Endangered as an initiative.
WE initiated the campaign #LetsTalkPeriod It comprises of menstrual hygiene sessions both in urban slums and in corporate offices as well as colleges. WE also Crowdsources funds and distributes menstrual cups to sexually active women in slums. All of this is done pro bono. So far the sessions have been conducted in Holambi Kalan basti, Jhugi Jhopri cluster Surnirman patpatganj, Gopi Chand Sharma School Noida, Jan Jagriti Foundation Trilokpuri, Vidya NGO Gurgaon and Hansraj College.
To bring about a change in the mind set of society in the way it perceives gender roles, in order to remove biases, stigmas, and stereotypes at all levels. We believe small steps help you reach your destination and until we change minds, no action will bring about lasting change.
