The Justice for Her project was celebrated at a special event in Delhi on January 23, hosted by Baroness Helena Kennedy. The project, led by Dr Sunita Toor of Sheffield Hallam's Helena Kennedy Centre for International Justice, has seen the development of a police training programme focusing on tackling violence against women and girls across four states in India.

As well as the training programme, one of the states (Madhya Pradesh) has committed to opening 51 one-stop victim support centres for female victims of violence.

The news story about the project received worldwide coverage, including BBC World News (interview on Global with Matthew Amroliwala), BBC World Service [listen from 04:07], Radio France, Daily Times (India), The Nation (Pakistan), The News Today (India) Gulf Today, Digital Journal (Canada), Yahoo News (Australia, Singapore & UK), Mail Online, News Asia, France24, Bangladesh Daily Star, Saudi Gazette, Khaleej Times, Gulf News, Kuwait Times, Borneo Bulletin and UK outlet Eastern Eye

Dr Toor also wrote a feature for The Conversation (republished by The Wire (India), The News Minute (India), apolitical, World Economic Forum, Qrius) and a blog for University Alliance about the groundbreaking project.
