Us

 

Formed in Bombay in 1996, Point of View is a non-profit organisation that works to promote the views of women through a creative use of media, arts and culture.

Our strap-line ‘Without the point of view of women, what’s the point?’ encompasses the motivation behind the work we do.

We believe that the opinions and perspectives of women are often sidelined on most issues that affect them – from housing to development to sexuality. And by using various forms of media, including advertising, photography, the internet, and writing, we work with women from a range of backgrounds across Bombay.

We’re currently working to address Domestic Violence (and more broadly violence against women) throughout the city. We’re working in slum communities in Ghatkopar and Dharavi to train women to be counsellors on issues of violence; we’ve worked collaboratively on a photography exhibition put together by Muslim women who are survivors of domestic abuse; we are working within hospitals through the means of a short film to train hospital workers to recognise and assist victims of violence.  We’re also involved in a range of other projects and programs, but instead of listing them all here, you can check them out on our website.

So where does Pyaar Plus fit into all this? Well, if we’re going to talk about issues such as domestic violence and abuse, we started thinking what was on the other side of that coin – relationships that are healthy. And we figured that the best way to get people (including ourselves) to better understand what that really means, is to have some honest and frank discussions. About love. About sex. About our bodies. About gender. And we thought that the earlier people start talking about these things, the better. And we’ll be the first to admit that we haven’t covered it all, and we’d love to hear from you about anything you’d like to add or contribute.
