Following the recent incidents of violence against women, the Aam Aadmi Party has been protesting against the present systems and laws. The current system has continuously failed the women in the capital. To combat this issue the Party organized a ‘#Women’sDialogue’ at Jantar Mantar, Delhi, recently. At the conference, the Party interacted with common people and discussed measures that could help prevent such crimes against women.
#Women’ssafety is one of the most important issues in the country today. Delhi, the capital of India, has the highest reported cases of rape in the country. As elections in the capital approach the party has promised to take required steps in this direction. According to AAP, they have a ten point agenda in ensuring safety of women in Delhi.
