About Madhabilata-The Fight For Her Justice in 46C Basudebpur, Belgharia -, Kolkata

The creation of 'Madhabilata-The Fight For Her Justice' is a logical culmination of a series of events that motivated me and some like-minded persons to start an organization to work on the issue of Women Empowerment.

The Inception:
One of the founding members, that is the Secretary of Madhabilata, had seen violence on women in his childhood from very close quarters of life. It was clear that Patriarchy was strong in the society and it continues to be strong in our society. Womenkind suffers in many cases not because of any disability or inability, but solely because they are women.This is known as Gender Based Violence and Gender Discrimination!!A resolve was made a few years ago to do something about it in an appropriate time.
Later on in his life, he became the CEO of a Kolkata based NGO named Prantakatha. During his career as a professional social worker, he was associated with a campaign called BRAVoW (Boys Responding against Violence on Women) under the Changeloom Project. The Changeloom project was conceived by PRAVAH and ComMutiny the Youth Collective, two of the leading organizations based in Delhi working on Youth Leadership Development. That experience only emphasised the point that there is indeed a lot of gender discrimination and gender-based violence affecting almost every nook and corner of the society. Daily newspaper reporting of different types of violence against women continuously proves the point, too.

The name of the organization-'Madhabilata-The Fight For Her justice', has been inspired by a famous Benagli literary character of the same name-Madhabilata!!The Novel 'Kalbela' by the famous Bengali writer Shamaresh Majumdar, portrayed how she stood up against the existing social taboos and stereotypes prevailing at that time against women.She withstood the pressure from patriarchy and curved out a path of dignity for her in the face of all odds.
Creating a path of dignity for women-this is the exact thing Madhabilata-the organization is trying to do.

Institutional Objectives of 'Madhabilata-The Fight For Her Justice' are as follows:
1.End all forms of discrimination against all women and girls.
