Da Hawwa Lur At Glance:
Da Hawwa Lur started working in 2001, with AASHA (Alliance against sexual Harassment), as an initiative of organizations committed to end sexual harassment at work and public places. At that time neither the issue was recognized as a problem articulated by the women’s movement nor accepted by the government and media. The magnitude of the issue of sexual harassment at workplace is so huge and the problem is so persistent that in the absence of any concrete government policy /law and safety net by employers, for curbing sexual harassment at workplace, women become a vulnerable group to sexual harassment at workplace. After the formation of law against sexual harassment in 2010, Da Hawwa Lur started to implement the law and aware the common masses in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Along with that Da Hawwa Lur expanded its reach across KP with special focus on transgender rights, girl’s education, women workers rights, policies advocacy to curb gender based violence, child rights and reproductive health rights. Da Hawwa Lur aims and ensures equality of workplace and recognition of home based and domestic workers. It helps building the capacity of grass root level women to make them economically and socially empowered.
