Call For Editors by Purple Ribbon Collective
About The Purple Ribbon Collective
The Purple Ribbon Collective is an organization run by law students at Government Law College, Mumbai. PRC aims to provide comprehensive support to survivors of domestic abuse and gender-based violence. We recognize and understand that domestic abuse has varied facets and survivors may need legal, medical, economic as well as psychological support. With the support of our Advisory Board comprising of legal luminaries such as Senior Advocate Dr. Colin Gonsalves, Senior Advocate Indira Jaising, Senior Advocate Mihir Desai and renowned Advocate Veena Gowda, we work towards connecting survivors to lawyers, NGOs, or counselors based on their needs, location, and financial standing.
We, at PRC, also aim to spread awareness about the abuse that comes with dating and premarital relationships. The prevalence of dating abuse, especially among teenagers, is a growing concern. We endeavor to help the youth recognize and identify abusive practices, which may take several forms such as physical, sexual, verbal, emotional as well as financial. In addition to which, we also educate children and teens, across India, on similar topics through sessions.
Our latest initiative, the Gender, Law, and Society Blog is exclusively curated to encourage and facilitate social discourse on gender-based issues, both legal and non-legal.
