Jagori

"Wake up, women!" is how the name of the Indian organization Jagori translates. It has shaped the women's rights movement in India for nearly 30 years. Based in India's capital New Delhi, the organization's 19 female staff use sophisticated PR techniques to give women in India a voice and make lasting improvements to women's position in Indian society. The action they take includes campaigns, publications, the protection of women's rights and gender equality, training courses, workshops and advice for women and girls who are victims of sexual harassment and violence. Jagori aims to reach out to women throughout the country and mobilize them to stand up for their rights.
