Gender is a powerful constituent of identity and defines, in varying degrees, the position and role one occupies in a given society. A patriarchal social system normalizes gender violence and discrimination. Our ideologies are formed in opposition to wide-spread and dominant discourses of patriarchy and gender discrimination that have plunged their claws deep into all frameworks of society whether legal and economic or pedagogic and familial.
All operations and activities of our organization are guided by our principles. Shakti Shalini respects all genders and all sexual orientations. We believe in the choice of the individuals with regard to gender and sexuality and attempt to aid them, if they seek it, in exercising their agency and upholding their choices regarding their identity.
