Speaking to the Beacon he said, “It’s not about strength but it’s in our mind, society will always tell that women are weak. It is ingrained in our head.” Darshana Mitra, a lawyer and Kavita Srinivas, a member of Vimochana (NGO) was also present who educated the women on the rights of women and ways in which women can file a complaint if faced with violence.
