In this episode, our guest Mona Yadav, a psychologist by profession and founder of Sahas, an NGO working for adolescence and gender-related issues, talks about her head-long plunge into activism.
"On December 16, 2012, Nirbhaya incident traumatised not just me but the entire nation. Since then I have been actively associated with gender movement," says Yadav, a Ph.D student in education studies from JNU.
Her parents were quite reluctant in letting her take up social work as a career, but slowly they came around.
"One Billion Rising was a turning point for them. My parents started feeling proud of me and my work. That day on, they started rallying around me They let me use the ground floor of our house as our office. Now they want to hold one such gender workshop in our native village in November-December this year," she says, beaming with pride.
Her workshops on gender-related cases have been a great hit. "The cases of sexual abuse are traumatic for a child. There has not been enough that is being done to create awareness on this subject. Imparting education in this field will go a long way in preventing such cases," she says.
Her elder sister is also a part of Sahas, and she takes care of some sessions.
