For nearly three decades now, Flavia Agnes has been championing the movement for women’s empowerment through her organisation Majlis. Founded in 1990, Majlis has been a harbinger of the women’s rights movement in India. It is an all-women organization comprising lawyers and support staff. From providing high quality, expert legal opinion to women and children who have suffered acute abuse; to advocacy for law reforms, Majlis toils to create systemic change and long-lasting impact. It has provided litigation support to more than 50,000 women and legal advice to another 1,50,000 – most of whom are from underprivileged and marginalized backgrounds. Faced with an abusive and violent marriage, not only did Flavia overcome her own harrowing circumstances, but also emerged as a gender justice warrior to help others.
