Together against violence against women

SIEDS works in the region around Bangalore for a non-violent society and for the empowerment of women. The collective offers counselling for women affected by violence, in which husbands and families are also involved. SIEDS conducts workshops with women on the topic of violence. Women are strengthened and empowered to reject the various forms of violence at home and in society. In spite of the seriousness of the topic, there is laughter on these occasions. SIEDS brings together the population, various social organisations and the authorities and involves them in the discussion on violence and equality. This is how the change towards equal rights for women at the social, official and legal levels is driven forward.
