by Rachna

Dr. Rachna Walia Talwar's thesis : India's Women: Domestic Violence and Condom Acceptability in India: shares the perspective of women in India who have spoken about their views on personal and private subjects like Domestic Marital Violence and Sexual and reproductive health.

Her research is an attempt to give a voice to this silent demographic, shy and reluctant to share their ideas, yet who should be most equipped to deal with the problems and vulnerabilities they face through awareness, knowledge, self-empowerment and community support. It aims to explain why women suffer from Domestic and Sexual violence and what are their attitudes towards issues like condom acceptance and sexual health.

Dr. Walia Talwar holds a PhD from the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland.
