Gouri commented on Stopping Violence Begins at Home

Dear Surriya
The alcohol card is a very-very interesting idea. Can you tell us more about it and how we can access the tool.
It is important to be aware that the mahila panchayats are working in Delhi, in communities where Action India has built a conducive environment over the years and women's solidarity through collectives like Sabla Sanghs, Chhoti Sablas, (14-19 years) Nanhi Sabla (9-13 years ).

Our experience in the rural villages in Hapur distt. shows that it took us 10 years to start the mahila panchayat, as you said women and girls have no options and therefore suffer in silence. A big movement across the country supported with the infrastructure to implement the PWDVA 2005, is possible by strengthening the network of women's organizations in every state.
Thank you for your interest and concern.
