CARE believes that a shift in the attitudes and mindsets that perpetrate gender based violence is fundamental in eliminating all forms of violence against women and girls.

In all its work through programming, advocacy and partnerships, we are committed to addressing underlying social norms and practices of violence against women and girls.

Through this petition, we lend our voice to millions raising theirs against gender based violence. It is also a voice seeking longer term interventions and committed action from the Government of India.

We seek to influence existing processes and structures committed to working towards eliminating violence against women by promoting mindsets and attitudes which treat women equal.  

It is time to speak up and take a stand against all those societal attitudes and mindsets which perpetrate discrimination and violence against and women and girls. 

Change begins with you and me! Because it is about you and me!
