Samata Foundation in collaboration with YUVA Organization conducted a program called “WE CAN” for women to raise voice against women violation. This event was held at Bhandup on 20th February, 2007 between 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Many problems and issues faced commonly by women were addressed which includes the following:
- Domestic violence,
- Fear of auto rickshaw drivers,
- Fear walking on road when alone, etc.
Women were motivated to defend against violence and not get scared. Self-confidence was rooted within them to raise voice when in danger and not to get scared by strangers.
Women were encouraged to join martial arts for self-protection.
