About The Purple Ribbon Collective
The Purple Ribbon Collective is an organisation run by law students at Government Law College, Mumbai. PRC aims to provide comprehensive support to survivors of domestic abuse and gender-based violence. They recognise and understand that domestic abuse has varied facets; thus, survivors may need legal, medical, economical as well as psychological support. With the support of our Advisory Board comprising of legal luminaries such as Senior Advocate Dr. Colin Gonsalves, Senior Advocate Indira Jaising, Senior Advocate Mihir Desai and renowned Advocate Veena Gowda, we work towards connecting survivors to lawyers, NGOs, or counsellors based on their needs, location, and financial standing.
PRC also aims to spread awareness about the abuse that comes with dating and premarital relationships. The prevalence of dating abuse, especially among teenagers, is a growing concern. They endeavour to help the youth recognise and identify abusive practices, which may take several forms such as physical, sexual, verbal, emotional as well as financial. In addition to which, they also educate children and teens, across India, on similar topics through sessions.
Their latest initiative, the Gender, Law, and Society Blog is curated to encourage and facilitate social discourse exclusively on gender-based issues and queer studies, both legal and non-legal.
