VISION & MISSION
“To ensure that women do, and will always play an equal role in the political and public life of our country”
‘Safety- Dignity- equality’ encapsulates the vision and mission of Mahila Congress as an Organisation as well as a Political entity and it shall strive to achieve these values in Social, Political and personal fields pertaining to women.
In India, a crime is committed against a woman every three minutes. From Female foeticide, infanticide, child trafficking, honor killings, acid attacks, molestation, child marriage, dowry and dowry deaths, domestic violence, female infanticide, molestation, sexual harassment at work, malnutrition, rapes and assaults, women across India face dangers in myriad ways, at home and outside.
Our vision is of a Nation and society Where a Woman’s safety is paramount and assured, right from a fetus to an Old age and her physical, mental, social and financial wellbeing is protected and given every opportunity to thrive.
A vocal champion of women’s interests, Mahila Congress endeavors to highlight the plight of women hailing from the different segments of our society through innovative and focused social campaigns around women’s rights issues and problems. The All India Mahila Congress shall also work towards building awareness and empathy for these issues in society and where ever possible, push for legislation to counter these issues via appropriate political platforms.
From her mere physical dignity to finding her rightful place in our patriarchal society as an equal, a woman can face many challenges. Her dignity as an individual, as a citizen of our nation, is denied and challenged by centuries-old prejudices, misogynist attitudes, and a male-dominated society.
However, in today’s India, woman have a never before the possibility of consolidating their position and breaking age-old traditions and mindsets, reimagining and creating a society Where her dignity is upheld, her being celebrated for what it is and not asked to reflect or follow that of a man.
Mahila Congress has resolved to be an agent of change by being a sympathetic partner, an enabling institution, a training and collaboration platform for women to assert and achieve these goals
The Constitution of India grants equal rights and status to women in the social, cultural, economic and political fields. But in spite of these formal rights, Indian women are still to achieve substantive equality within the social, economic, and political spheres. There is a world of ignorance and prejudiced violence which has kept her in the shadow of men. We envisage a Nation where every woman is as aware of her Rights and capable of executing them as she is of her duties. Where she is not a second-class citizen but an equal- in Rights, Responsibilities and decision making.
Mahila Congress shall endeavor to push for political awareness and will open these avenues through conferences, talks, legislation, bills, and campaigns.
