Attn Bangalore- Public Talk by Bhanwari Devi #Gangrape #Vaw #sexualharassment

Dear All,

The Alternative Forum invites you to a talk by Bhanwari Devi.The talk
will focus specifically on her battle for justice in the courts after she
was gang-raped in 1992. The attack on her and her husband was the result of
a backlash against her campaign against child marriage in Rajasthan from the
Gujjar community. At the time, was employed as a saathin by
the Rajasthan government as part of the Women’s Development Project. Her
protracted legal battle attracted national and international attention and
resulted in the historic Vishakha judgment, in which the Supreme Court used
international principles to formulate guidelines to address sexual
harassment at the workplace. In 1994, Bhanwari Devi was awarded the Neerja
Bhanot Memorial Award for “her extraordinary courage, conviction and
commitment”.

When: Saturday, 9th March

Where: Alternative Law Forum, 122/4 Infantry Road (opposite Infantry Wedding
Hall), Bangalore 560001

All are welcome.
