Gender Equality & Domestic Violence
We are conducting Gender Equality and Domestic Violence sessions and spreading awareness about the issues and gaps in current society. Across India we are conducting these sessions in Corporates, Schools, Colleges, Hostels, NGOS, Villages and Urban Slums.
We promote Gender Justice and preventing violence by engaging men and boys in partnership with women and girls. We see gender as a cross-cutting issue that we address in every program to make an equal world. Gender equality is at the heart of all our programming and advocacy work and we sensitize people on all forms of gender discriminations.
Gender equality is achieved when women & men enjoy the same rights and opportunities across all sectors of society, including economic participation and decision-making, and when the different behaviors, aspirations and needs of women and men are equally valued and favoured. Gender equality is seeing males and females as being of equal status and value. It is judging a person based on their merit, and not viewing them as inferior or superior purely based on their gender.
Domestic violence is not physical violence alone. Domestic violence is any behavior, the purpose of which is to gain power and control over a spouse, partner, girl/boyfriend or intimate family member. Abuse is a learned behavior; it is not caused by anger, mental problems, drugs or alcohol, or other common excuses.
When the general public thinks about domestic violence, they usually think in terms of physical assault that results in visible injuries to the victim. This is only one type of abuse. There are several categories of abusive behavior, each of which has its own devastating consequences. Lethality involved with physical abuse may place the victim at higher risk, but the long term destruction of personhood that accompanies the other forms of, abuse is significant and cannot be minimized.
We at Spherule foundation provide counselling and support to all victims and run programmes and sessions for this cause.
