Mission End violence against women

The Honour for Women National Campaign is a nationwide movement in India to end violence against women. The movement was founded by women’s rights activist Manasi Pradhan in the year 2009.

Launched under the aegis of OYSS Women, the movement galvanized in the aftermath of the 2012 Delhi gang rape incident.

The principal objective of the movement is to end violence against women in India and secure economic, social and political justice to all women in the country.

The movement employs a multi-pronged strategy to fight the menace of violence against women in India. It uses a plethora of vehicles i.e. women’s rights stall, women’s rights festival, women’s rights meets, women’s rights literature, audio-visual displays, street plays etc. to raise awareness on legal and institutional provisions to fight atrocities on women.

On the other hand, it puts pressure on the state by mobilizing public opinion and sustained campaigning for institutional changes and correctional measures to contain violence against women.

After a four year long effort involving a series of national and state-level seminars, workshops and consultations involving stakeholders from across India, the movement came up with a draft ‘Ending Violence against Women : A National Roadmap’.
