Ms Talish Ray is a senior partner in TRS Law in India, which operates in three Indian provinces. Talish came to Tasmania in February 2016 and spoke about the impact of the Delhi rape case, the community response to that case and subsequent changes to the law. While here she identified the award winning program Girls Gotta Know developed by the Hobart Women’s Legal Service as an initiative that could be developed and adapted for distribution in India as part of the endeavor to advance the rights of Indian women and girls. She is being funded in part by the Australia-India Council to visit again for a series of interactive workshops to harness the collective knowledge and experience of Tasmanians working to empower and educate women and girls.
