MEDIA RELEASE: Girls Gotta Know India

Women’s Legal Service Tasmania, in conjunction with TRS Law Offices (India) are pleased to announce their collaboration in the production of a website for young women, Girls Gotta Know India, made possible by the support of the Tasmania Law Reform Institute, and the support of the Australian Government through the Australia-India Council of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Already a valuable source of information for young women right around Australia, our services are pleased to partner to adapt the Girls Gotta Know platform to suit the young women of India.

“Women’s Legal Service Tasmania is excited to be collaborating with TRS Law Offices, and see this as a fantastic opportunity not only to see an innovative Tasmanian project adapted to the Indian market, but to play a small but supportive role in the huge work being undertaken in delivering critical information to the young women of India.” said Susan Fahey, CEO of Women’s Legal Service Tasmania.

The format of the website offers a tremendous impact potential for India, where cultural shift towards gender equality is needed. The new website will be used to raise awareness among young Indian women about their legal rights and services available to help them, written in an easy to understand, friendly and culturally relevant language, with emphasis on gender equality. The website will feature information written in both English and Hindi.

“Being a discrete and sensitive source of information, the website is an opportunity to educate women on their social and legal rights in an accurate and focused manner, in a format that most young people in India are more likely to use.” TRS Law Offices say.
