In accordance with the 5 year program of The Hunger project, a large state wide program of mobilization and capacity building of elected women representatives has been taking shape through the state.
The strategy is –
- Strengthening the women leadership in Panchayats for their confident and active participation.
- Joining hands with like minded organizations, individuals who are all committed towards strengthening the various ongoing processes of women’s empowerment.
Currently, the public opinion on role of women as change agents on public issues is not positive. There is a lot of skepticism prevalent. Seeking positive support from the media (print and electronic) to address and positively influence public opinion, on this issue is one of the strategies that are adopted.
