Job Title: Project Coordinator
Organization: Lawyers Collective Women’s Rights Initiative (LCWRI)
Location: New Delhi
The Lawyers Collective Women’s Rights Initiative (“LCWRI”)’s mission is the empowerment of women through law and is based on the belief that law is an instrument of social change and can be used in different ways to further the constitutional and human rights of women. Since its inception in 1998, the LCWRI has been actively engaged with the entire legal regime of addressing the rights of women in law. Our objective has always been to find out the efficacy and relevance of legislation and legal systems and recommend its better use, as well as to initiate and spearhead law reform processes, whenever required. Recommendations put forth are directed not only towards recognizing equality rights of women but also towards creating an enabling environment in which such rights can be asserted. The LCWRI’s efforts in creating legal awareness are guided by the overall objective of empowering women. The work of the LCWRI has in the past years been focused on a wide range of issues such as domestic violence, sexual harassment at the workplace, sexual assault, reproductive rights, trafficking/commercial sexual exploitation and other similar issues. Our most successful campaign has been the enactment of the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act in 2005.
