Traditionally, India has a patriarchal system. While barriers are broken and many women are marching ahead in all walks of life, there are a lot more who are deprived of their basic human rights. They come last in the structure of the family. They need support socially and legally to lead a life of dignity. Volunteering India has joined hands with local partners who work for women’s causes and offers placements to volunteers.
