Launch of Bengali Version of the Video

 Akshara Centre is thrilled to announce the launch of the Bengali version of the video #LockdownOnDomesticViolence, in collaboration with David & Goliath Films and Swayam, supported by Richa Sharma, Aparna Sen, Usha Uthup, Parambrata

Chatterjee, Bickram Gosh, Konkona Sen Sharma, Adil Hussain and Jaya Sil. They urge people to not be bystanders but to report and help women seek help on West Bengal women’s commission helpline no. Their passionate support to be a part this cause will be significant to educate and spread awareness about social crimes like domestic violence in our country.

Since the nationwide lockdown, people have been directed to “stay home” to prevent the virus spread. Consequently, cases of Domestic Violence have increased manifold. For countless women living 24×7 with their abusers, the lockdown has hugely exacerbated the violence they face, and the National Commission for Women has reported a twofold increase in Domestic Violence since the lockdown. This situation is now recognized as a ‘Shadow Pandemic’ by UN Women and countries across the world are seeing a surge in domestic violence.

Akshara Centre in collaboration with David & Goliath Films and Swayam along with Special Cell for Women and Children (TISS) with support from Government of Maharashtra, the Police and many eminent personalities from the sports and entertainment industry, came together to produce a powerful video #LockdownOnDomesticViolence, in English, Hindi and Marathi that urges citizens to fight and raise their voice against the brutality taking place in their homes and creates much needed awareness about Domestic Violence in the current situation.
