Examination of the impacts of an agency-based empowerment training on experience of gender-based violence
An agency-based empowerment training has been conducted on over 200 women in Pune and the surrounding rural areas in 2013-14. Preliminary follow-up data has documented changes in health seeking and well-being. This study plans to collect additional in-depth data on changes in the experience of gender-based violence (GBV) since participation in the workshop. Qualitative and quantitative interviews will be conducted on a cohort of 150 women and matched controls and analyzed to assess impact of the empowerment training on GBV.
