Women

Majlis Manch is a Public Trust and an NGO headed by renowned Advocate and Women's Rights Activist, Flavia Agnes.

Majlis started in 1991 as a response to a growing need for lawyers with a gender perspective who are dedicated to evolving innovative legal practices to defend women's rights.

Majlis had started by providing legal support and guidance to women facing domestic violence to access their rights and pursue justice in courts. They further extended support to women and child victims of sexual violence as well as sexual harassment at the workplace.

They are also involved in training, research, campaigns, and publications on issues concerning violence against women and children. They work to demystify laws and make them accessible to judges, lawyers, prosecutors, police, NGOs and other government and non-government representatives and most importantly, to women themselves.

The broad categories of their programs are as follows:

Litigation
