Over 100 individuals committed to women’s and transpersons’ human rights have written to the Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal, urging him to act in accordance with women rights standards in his government’s response to COVID-19, especially in the context of the painful aftermath of the riots in North East Delhi and the humanitarian crisis that has followed the announcement of the lockdown.

“..we wish to remind you that it is obligatory on the government to do due diligence in upholding standards of international law and state policy must not magnify existing gender inequality or force women and transpersons along with other marginalised communities into a greater humanitarian catastrophe. The challenges posed by COVID-19 must also take into account lived experiences of women, girls and transpersons.”
the Letter reads.

Signatories to the letter include Advocates Vrinda Grover and Anubha Rastogi.
