Related activities on women, peace and security I am an independent activist associated with several women’s groups at the grassroots and national and International levels. As a member of NAWO in 1997, I had initiated a women and peace group on issues concerning NE India as well on issues of caste conflict. This was part of post –Beijing initiatives supported then by UN for Women.

Thereafter, I have been actively involved on issues of communalism, where using religion there have incidents of communal violence on minority groups. I was also part of a brief study for YWCA of India on the violence inflicted on minorities(Christians) in Kandhamal district of Odisha state, India.

T o address the issues of growing conflict affecting women, whether by religion or caste, I have been part of various local level collective actions of protest, advocacy at the state and National levels to bear pressure on the authorities to take cognizance of the conflict and initiate action against the perpetrators.
