WE CAN CAMPAIGN
Violence against women is rooted in gender inequality and that whether in homes or outside, it reflects the power structures in society which relegate the status of women in society to be only that after men. Its starting point is, thus, to deal with conditions that systematically deny women their lives, health, rights, choices and power in the family. Society is working as a campaign in 29 districts of Madhya Pradesh (Satna, Rewa, Sidhi, Singrauli, Shahdol, Umaria, Anoopur, Katni, Jabalpur, Mandla, Seoni, Balaghat, Chhindwada, Narsinghpur, Bhopal, Raisen, Hoshangabad, Vidisha, Betul, Chhatarpur, Panna, Damoh, Sagar, Datia, Shivpuri, Gwalior, Bhind, Muraina, Tikamgarh) with the support of OXFAM, New Delhi where the people are aware to understand the different types of violence.
