Project Description

The successful AASHA (Alliance against Sexual Harassment) movement and setting up the precedent of public, private partnership culminated into the passage of sexual harassment legislation. Although Mehergarh has been engaged with systematic legal advocacy around women’s legislation, this success was the impetus to organize the Legal and Advocacy Unit as a specialized effort to draft and advocate for pro women legislation. This Unit also does research on legislation, identifies gaps in the overall legal framework with regard to women rights and comes up with strategies for implementation of these laws.
