Description: "The paper will discuss three things – the differing perceptions of women’s organizations and the government over the design of the NCW, the impact of the composition, power, autonomy and status of the NCW on its functioning, and the effectiveness of the functioning of the Commission through its handling of violence against women. The assessment raises certain questions. Located at the interstices of state and civil society, what are the possibilities of using this institution in a positive way? How should activists engage with it? And, as an institution that expresses the interests of the marginalized sections of society, to what extent has it been able to draw upon the experiences and knowledge of women’s movements at the local levels?"
