‘Majlis’ (association) is a broad based pluralistic organisation encompassing two centers, Legal and Cultural. The founder members of Majlis have been a part of the women’s movement in India since 1980.

Majlis started in 1991 as a response to a growing need for lawyers with a gender perspective who are dedicated to evolving innovative legal practices to defend women’s rights. Headed by Adv. Flavia Agnes we are an all women team comprising of lawyers and social activists. Our agenda for social change is – quality legal representation

for  individual women in court, changing mindsets through advocacy and training and evolving gender just ideology through campaigns and interventions.

Majlis is registered as a Society and Public Trust, No. F-14669 (mumbai), with an exemption from income tax under S. 80 G and an FCRA Registration.
