UPCOMING EVENTS:

Gloria: A life brings us a richly detailed tapestry about one of the most inspiring and remarkable women of our time. Five decades after Gloria Steinem began raising her voice for equality and championing those of others, her vision is as urgent as ever. Gloria’s life’s work and philosophy on the necessity of conversation as a catalyst for change offer us all a path forward in a way that only live theatre can. The first act is her story; the second is our own.

Gloria Steinem is a Feminist Campaigner & Chair of Apne Aap’s Advisory Board. Starring Christine Lahti, as Gloria, [Chicago Hope, The Blacklist], produced by Daryl Roth [Kinky Boots, Indecent, The Normal Heart], directed by Diane Paulis [Waitress, Pippin] and written by Emily Mann [Having Our Say].

ACTIONS YOU CAN TAKE NOW:

 

SIGN THIS PETITION: ENSURE FAIR TRIAL FOR KATHUA RAPE CASE 

Lawyer Deepika Rajawat on her way to court 

Witnesses and lawyers representing the 8-year-old Muslim girl who was gang-raped and murdered in Kathua, India, this year, are being attacked and intimidated, as the trial unfolds.

We need to put a stop to this! 

Join Apne Aap and Equality Now to ask Prime Minister Modi to ensure that justice is not denied in this case!

Despite the brutal nature of the crime committed by powerful men against an innocent child, some groups are running media campaigns and holding rallies in support of the perpetrators and attacking the lawyers and witnesses. They have politicized the case by presenting it falsely as a case against the Hindu community. They are even hounding the entire nomadic community of Bakarwals that the little girl belonged to. 

Some police officers (who are now co-accused in the case) also tried to destroy evidence of the crime. Attempts have been made to physically prevent the charges against the accused rapists being filed in court. 

Despite an increasing number of rape cases being reported every day, survivors of sexual violence struggle to get justice within the Indian legal system. Between 2015 and 2016 alone there was an 82% spike in reported rapes of children. Another 133,000 rape cases were pending trial in the same year.

Please sign the petition and raise your voice to demand a fair and impartial trial in the Kathua case, so that the family of the 8-year-old gets justice. Insist that the Modi government take immediate action to stop the intimidation and to address the larger systemic problem of sexual violence within the country.

Thank you.
