One of the most important things Oxfam India does is advocate for rights. We fight for the right to food. The right to political freedom.The right to land. The right to dignity.
One of the most important rights, however, is the right to live free of the fear of violence.
Sadly, this right remains beyond the grasp of millions of women in South Asia, who live in the shadow of violence every day. It becomes a banal but horrifying reality that dominates their lives, extinguishing their hopes for a better future.
