About The Event

Iconic feminist Gloria Steinem is being hosted by Apne Aap Women Worldwide this January. Along with Ruchira Gupta President & Founder of Apne Aap Women Worldwide they sat in a circle with a few girls who live on the outskirts of Delhi, a community where they are vulnerable to being forced into practices like inter-generational prostitution. Together they discussed what justice means to them. Their answers? #Justice is the right to education; #justice is the opportunity to get a good job; #justice is truth. They are #rising4justice
