Hearts and Minds – Women of India Speak

This report and photo-essay are aimed at sharing the "live experience" of women and girls in India and ensuring that the voices especially those remain socially, economically and geographically marginalised are meaningfully reflected in the emerging post-2015 development discourse and agenda. The analysis contained in this report is based on in-depth interviews with women and focus-group discussions with almost 200 elected women representatives - a constituency over a million strong in India and considered as equal and important stakeholders in helping shape the post-2015 global development agenda.
