WOMEN EMPOWERMENT PROJECT

Red Hills, Chennai – 52.

(Dorcas Tailoring Institute)

Remote area women’s human rights are violated.They do not have an understanding of what is the right, what is the violation, and how to prevent the violence. Also there is no place and organziations for women to go to. Therefore, it requires to deliver service to prevent and protect women in remote areas.

It should be noted that alcoholism, poverty, and education levels are contributing factors to violence against women rather than the fundamental causes of it.   Negative assumptions, prejudice and eagerness for more power enshrined in the cultural values and practices reflecting patriarchy are the fundamental cause of violence against women.
