In a proud moment for MCGM and CEHAT, Dr Meena Savjani of Rajawadi Hospital, Mumbai, was awarded the Dignity Award in the ‘Medical Service Provider’ category for her untiring efforts over the years towards ensuring comprehensive and gender-sensitive care for survivors of sexual violence.

This honour was conferred upon her by the Rashtriya Garima Abhiyan and Jan Sahas, who are organizers of the Dignity March to End Sexual Violence against Women and Children – a 10,000 kilometre national march spanning 200 districts of 24 states/union territories in India which began from Mumbai on 20th December, 2018 and culminated in Delhi on 22nd February, 2019. This march is a platform for survivors to tell their stories in their own voice, and to present their own narratives. It represents a call to end the culture of shame and fear among survivors, to encourage people to speak up, and demand zero tolerance for sexual violence in our society. It aims to hold the society and the state accountable towards ensuring punitive action against the perpetrator through effective implementation of legal guidelines, and ensuring rehabilitation facilities for survivors.
