As part of a bigger social impact strategy associated with the release of feature documentary Geeta, Neetu (Geeta's daughter) is in Australia to ask Australian’s (and the world) to ‘wake up’ to gender-based violence against women and girls.

 

About NEETU

Despite being vision impaired, and living through years of stigma from her community, Neetu is an outspoken fighter and radical change-maker: she is a long-term member of the Stop Acid Attacks movement and a co-founder of Sheroes Hangout in Agra, India, a social enterprise that employs 30 full-time acid attack survivors and supports the training and rehabilitation of a further 100 women.

 

About The Wake Up Campaign

 

Neetu's Wake Up Campaign is ambitious. Which is why Neetu needs us to mobilise, communicate and challenge injustices stemming from gender bias and gender violence. 

 

Her aim is to raise awareness of her story and the film to highlight the harmful effects of gender bias on women, girls and families across the world, as well as acid violence globally.

 

 

Neetu will drive change by:

 

  • Building an active global network of young people and community leaders passionate about championing change.

  • Creating educational resources (in multiple languages) that can be used alongside school and community screenings of 'Geeta' across the world.

  • Working  with partners to lobby for training for police and the judiciary in Australia to improve culturally appropriate legal responses and to create culturally safe houses for migrant and refugee women and children in Australia

  • Collaborating on campaigns that challenge, provoke and reinforce positive messaging around the benefits of gender equality

 

We look forward to you being part of the movement to create grassroots change to stamp out gender violence.
