Here I am speaking to BBC Impact Asia about the CII’s proposed “Women’s Protection Bill” and the state of women’s rights in general.
In making notes for this interview, I realized that there are three elements to consider in any movement for social justice:
As I said in the interview, we have to raise awareness about the status of girls and women, before we can go about changing attitudes, and taking action to protect and safeguard those rights. It’s not a linear progression: often all three elements happen at the same time. But all three are vital and cannot be omitted from the process of social change.
