Dear friends,

When I made this petition, the chairperson seat was empty for a month. I thought, a new commission would be appointed in less than a month anyway (an average 3 month gap has been observed) and hence efforts should be to make Women's Commission more approachable through digital platforms.

But, it has been more than 17 months and there has been no progress. Our safety issues are just increasing by the day and it is heartbreaking to see that there it is not taken seriously. Trolls tell me that i should be grateful for She Teams and leave it be.

No. We are in 2020. A century ago, women were fighting for the Right to Education and Right to Vote. And, today, we are fighting for Right to Safety while we go pursue education/ career/ travel, etc. It is just ridiculous that we have to fight to exist in peace!

The recent Disha rape and murder was not a one-off event! Did you know, that despite the encounter, there are so many more gruesome rape and murder cases in Telangana?

We need and deserve a long-term solution for Women's safety and security.

Join me, in asking Hon'ble Chief Minister of Telangana to appoint a chairperson, give us a fully functional Women's Commission including digital platform by this Women's Day.

I will be updating the ask from just an online portal to appointing chairperson for Women's Commission along with an online portal for digital access.
