A website called girlsgottaknow has been launched to educate women in India about their legal rights. Tasmania-based Women’s Legal Service has launched the website in collaboration with TRS Law Offices in India.
It has different topics like relationships, employment, partying, renting, money, etc. and the website provides all the required details for women to take informed decisions in various situations.
The design of girlsgottaknow is such that it is easy for people to navigate. Each section has a description of the situation before it takes users to the specifics. For example, the relationships section has legal details about live-in relationships, rape and sexual assault, adoption, surrogacy, and more.
“Women’s Legal Service Tasmania is excited to be collaborating with TRS Law Offices and see this as a fantastic opportunity not only to see an innovative Tasmanian project adapted to Indian market, but to play a small but supportive role in the huge work being undertaken in delivering information to the young women of India,” Susan Fahey, CEO of Women’s Legal Service Tasmania told PTI.
The project has been completed with support from the Australian government. Talish Ray, a partner with TRS law offices said that women in India have the least knowledge and awareness about their legal rights that often proves harmful for them.
