WISCOMP will integrate screenings of 'He Named Me Malala' with panel discussions and capacity-building workshops in National Capital Region (NCR) and other states like Jammu and Kashmir that are vulnerable to gender-based violence. These activities will maximize impact on the knowledge, beliefs, attitude and behavior of the participants (educators and students), helping them to become change agents in their families and communities.
Patriarchal attitudes and gender-based violence lie at the root of gender inequality in the educational sphere. Female literacy rates in India continue to be low despite several state run programs to improve girls' access to schools and higher education.
WISCOMP will launch a high-impact initiative to transform beliefs and attitudes to counter (and prevent) the violence of exclusion of girls from translating educational access into fulfillment of their full potential.
Build a public sensibility about the right of women and girls to lead unfettered lives of dignity, peace and choice.
