It was Delhi Nirbhaya incident and series of gender based crimes that had triggered me to understand how it perpetuates and influences all strata of life. As someone who was raised hearing the stories of Gender Based Violence(GBV) from my mother and sisters, I really wanted to do something about that. This Delhi incident has been a driving force towards it. I went ahead and started a Facebook page AWARE – Awareness for Wo+Men to Advocate their Rights and Equality and started sharing articles, created online campaigns to create awareness on how women can fight back GBV. The page was a huge hit and I started getting a lot of messages and response to my posts. Following that, along with some friends we adopted a fisherman community in Chemmenchery and have been working with the children and women for three years now, and have been expanding our work and reach every year.
