CURRICULUM: Jago Aur Jagao Badlao Ki Aur
Violence against Women and Girls (VAWG) is a gross violation of human rights and one of the most persistent forms of gender inequality and discrimination. Though VAWG is a global pandemic, it does not often receive the attention and urgency that is needed to address it. The justification and rationalising of violence is deep rooted within the accepted social norms in countries. There is now a felt need to change the underlying social norms that influence individuals, collectives of women and men, norm-setters and institutions. It is for this reason that Oxfam India has launched its campaign Bano Nayi Soch: Buno Hinsa Mukt Rishtey on challenging and changing social norms that underpin violence against women and girls.
Oxfam India launched Bano Nayi Soch campaign in 2016 to shift the social norms that underpin violence against women and girls, and child early and forced marriage (CEFM). The campaign is operational in five states of India, i.e. Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Odisha, and Uttar Pradesh (UP). This campaign is being executed in partnership with 18 Women Rights Organisations and 20 colleges and universities. Under this campaign, Oxfam partners capacitated 23,000 youth, delivering sessions with more than 530 groups of adolescent girls and boys and 650 groups of young women and men. The campaign promoted 215 gender justice champions, 175 from rural and 40 from urban areas.
