Driving Change: Championing Women’s Rights in India with Swati Maliwal

The recent video of an assault in Manipur has shaken us to the core. It is a reminder of the dark reality that women still face in India, which ranks 140 out of 156 countries in terms of gender equality. But amid the darkness, there is hope. 

Swati Maliwal, the Chairperson of the Delhi Commission for Women, is a woman on whose shoulders lies the responsibility of driving change. Under her leadership, the Commission has seen a revolutionary shift, handling over 1.23 lakh cases in just seven years. Ms Maliwal's unyielding spirit has taken her on hunger strikes, demanding justice for the victims of heinous crimes.

In this episode of the Global Indian Podcast, I speak with Ms Maliwal about her journey of fostering change and transforming the landscape of women's rights in India. We delve into the challenges, the strides made, what is currently being done, the big misconceptions, what the world needs to be educated on and the vision for a more equal future.

This is an inspiring conversation that will ignite your passion for change. Join the movement and participate in this powerful journey towards a better tomorrow.

Tune in now to hear Swati Maliwal's inspiring story and learn more about the work being done to champion women's rights in India. Together, we can drive change.
