Addressing Domestic Violence in India

Since 2006, we have supported the implementation and monitoring of the landmark Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005. In partnership with the Lawyers Collective Women’s Rights Initiative and the Government of India, we helped to develop important materials to increase awareness such as FAQ’s, a manual for protection officers and a handbook for the judiciary. For the first time in India, the implementation of such legislation is being tracked on an annual basis. Four Monitoring and Evaluation Reports have been produced.

The “Bell Bajao” (Ring the Bell) campaign by The Breakthrough Trust, UN Women and the UN Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women reached out to more than 130 million people and raised awareness about domestic violence
