Research, Documentation and Information Dissemination

Streevani ventures on participatory research projects and transform the results of these findings into writings and documents of various kinds and levels, to provide a basis for policy making decisions, actions and programmes. The research is facilitated by documentation and a reference library. Currently the Streevani bulletin "Birthing a new Vision" has been a way to bring about feminist consciousness.


As a dynamic movement, we are committed to the following objectives:

  • Stimulate a wider and deeper awareness of women's problems
  • To express views and ideas which reflect national/ international debates on women and empowerment
Area of Focus
  • Documentaries
