Gender-based violence is a deeply ingrained issue in society that is perpetuated by patriarchy. It is a major human rights violation, with the majority of victims being women and girls. It is estimated that one in three women will experience sexual or physical violence in their lifetime. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to an increase in cases of domestic violence. The Tarangini Foundation is working to address the issue of gender-based violence by providing psychosocial counseling, livelihood options, and support for women's rights. It also advocates for recognition of women's work, identity, and control over their bodies. Tarangini is working in collaboration with civil society organizations, media, and stakeholders to raise awareness and bring the issue to the national agenda. Despite progress in addressing gender-based violence, it remains a major problem globally, and will not be fully addressed until inequalities are addressed and the patriarchal mindset is changed.
