A symposium on women and abuse at home
Aside from women, there are other vulnerable population groups that are at an increased risk of facing domestic violence, people from the LGBTQIA+ community, children, elderly people, and people living with a disability. Currently the law—The Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005—provides relief only in situations where the aggrieved person is a woman.
Watch Meghana Chandra, lawyer and founder of Shaki, and Bhumika Sahani, social worker and consultant, Shakti, talk about the legal reality of domestic violence in India, with a focus on access to justice. This presentation was recorded as a part of the symposium on women and abuse at home, hosted by White Swan Foundation on 9th September, 2020.
