JOIN OUR MODERN DAY DANDI MARCH TO END VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN

Our Story
Violence against women is perpetually in the news these days and the horrors of gang rape, dowry deaths, acid attacks and honour killings are too lurid and omnipresent to ignore any longer. It is a slap in the face of India and its claim to its modernity and progress.

We are tired of hearing that India is NOT a country for Women, tired of just waiting for someone else to bring about CHANGE.   
This is a shout out to you, our fellow countrymen and change-makers across the world.

Our Goal

This September, Srishti Bakshi, on her Modern Day Dandi March, will be walking 3800 km (2300 miles) from Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu (South India) to Srinagar, Kashmir (North India). With this on-foot journey, we hope to collect ONE BILLION STEPS, from you towards making India a safer country for women.  
 

How will we achieve our Goal?

CrossBow Miles is now on the last leg of its 3800 km on-foot journey from Kanyakumari to Kashmir, after crossing the 3000 km mark. Srishti Bakshi is now marching upwards and onwards through Haryana, Punjab and finally onto J&K.


This came on the back of an action-packed stay in Delhi. Team CrossBow Miles met the President of India, Shri Ram Nath Kovind who reiterated his support to the campaign, with valuable suggestions on growing and motivating the volunteer network.


The movement also got tremendous international recognition. Srishti got the highest accolade from the British Commonwealth, receiving the Commonwealth Points of Light award for India from the British High Commissioner, Sir Dominic Asquith, on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen.


CrossBow Miles used the time in Delhi to impart what it had learnt through practical experience and observations of the problems faced by women in India and possible solutions.

We participated in the Gender Equality Summit by the United National Global Compact Network India, an ITC knowledge roundtable with noted lawyers and women leaders,  #SHEROESHours, a multi-city event to #PressforProgress on the occasion of International Women's Day and many more thought-provoking workshops and interactions.  

The standout events in Delhi where the heart and the mood of the city were so visible were the Public Wall Painting at Sarojini Nagar market where over 300 people painted messages of gender equality and the Public Night Walk where over 15,000 people rallied together to reclaim the night as a safe space for women and children.




With both public events, the atmosphere was distinctly electric with the energy and determination to bring about change in society and make it safer and better for women.  

Please do join in this movement. Every step you take goes towards building a safer and better India for women and girls and brighter future for all.
