Social Democratic Party of India Womens Wing Delhi organized a protest at Jantar Mantar on the occasion of International Women’s Day. The protestors raised slogans against the violence meted out to women and the handling of Nirbhaya rape case. Women Cadres from 5 different districts of Delhi participated in the protest demonstration.
Addressing the gathering Delhi Womens’ Wing Convener Shaheen Kousar said on this day every year we hear about womens rights and providing them with justice, but these promises have all always fell flat and the oppression on women continues unprecedentedly.
Rape cases are reported every 20 minutes, hundreds of women are harassed and barbarically murdered for dowry and the most horrific of the cases are foeticide. Raising of such heinous incidents show how serious the government is when it comes to womens safety in our country.
Party’s Womens Wing also participated in the massive program jointly organized by Purogami Mahila Sangathan.
