Founded in 1976, their work has been centered on empowering women-who are disproportionately vulnerable to crime and gender-based violence. It has adopted a two-pronged approach with an emphasis on: • Creating awareness and dissemination of information and knowledge • Building self-reliance by organizing grassroots groups to struggle for their rights Action India facilitates and enables poor and marginalized women to organize themselves, to demand a rightful share of social and economic resources, and to be a political voice in all spheres of development.
