Research & Action Report Spring/Summer 2009
Pam Alexander, Ph.D. traveled with a group of Wellesley College faculty in January to Mysore, and Mumbai, India on a trip sponsored by the Bernstein Fund for Global Education. The focus of the trip was to develop research partnerships with Indian scholars and practitioners in each individual’s area of interest. With contacts facilitated by Dr. R. Indira from the University of Mysore, Alexander met with several women’s agencies that focus specifically on helping women who are victims of domestic violence, including Mahila Samakhya Karnataka and Shakthi Dhama. She also met with Teesta Setalvad who is a Mumbai-based civil rights activist and the Women’s Centre in Mumbai.
