Hers is Ours

Hers is Ours is a Collective that works on the issue of Violence Against Women (VAW), and gender discrimination at large. The organization focuses on creating awareness of healing and empowerment through art. 

The Collective is based in Agra, India, and they reached out to us in order to expand their work internationally. As VAW is unfortunately a global social & systematic issue Human Rights in the Picture is supporting their important work by sharing our knowledge and the large network of creatives and human rights activists in order for Her is Ours to reach their goals.

One of their first projects we supported in realizing was the documentary Our Odyssey is Red. This documentary is based on the lives of the Krantikaris (revolutionaries in Hindi), a group of daughters of sex workers from Kranti, a Mumbai based NGO.
