Strengthen and Publicize the Women’s Helpline 112

Recent news

Victory! A major step towards a safer India.

I have great news to share for all those who signed this petition for women safety.

Ministry of Women & Child Development (Ministry of WCD) announced a major update to ensure safety and security of women (linked below). The Govt. is using the Nirbhaya Fund to set up Women Help Desks in 10,000 police stations and 1023 Fast Track Special Courts.

While we have a long way to go, here's hoping that measures like these provide timely support for those in need, and help prevent more heinous crimes from happening.

And words cannot describe my gratitude to each and every one of you who signed this petition. Thank you for turning this humble attempt into a victory. It would have been impossible without you.

I'm also thankful to the Govt. of India and the Ministry of WCD for their significant and sincere efforts towards promoting women safety. With a promise to contribute to this cause wherever possible, I'm signing off.

Best wishes and gratitude,
