However, Maliwal dedicated the next decade of her life to grassroots activism, aiding slum dwellers on issues ranging from procuring ration to fighting against gendered violence. From the age of 21, Maliwal also took up residence in a slum in Sunder Nagri, to experience the conditions there first-hand.

The face of the watershed movement was Anna Hazare, along with Arvind Kejriwal. The campaign at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi, untied millions of Indians and remains a landmark moment in India’s recent political history. It led to the resignation of high-profile ministers of the United Progressive Alliance government and passage of a anti-corruption, Jan Lokpal Bill. It also led to the birth of the Aam Admi Party. In 2015, Maliwal became the youngest Chairperson of the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW), handling over 1.7 lakh cases of domestic violence, rape, and other crimes against women.

Maliwal also went on hunger strikes in 2018 and 2019 to demand justice, the correct utilization of Nirbhaya Fund, and additional police resources.

They sent 24 interim recommendations to the President of India, including the imposition of President’s rule, the establishment of a Special Investigation Team, and legal and counseling aid. DCW has also intervened in other states, such as Jharkhand, where ex-Chief Minister Hemant Soren commended their work in rescuing girls from traffickers. Maliwal has led protests and campaigns to advocate for women’s rights and safety, including the Padyatra protest in 2019, the Rape Roko movement in 2018, and the Satyagraha movement in 2017.Swati Maliwal has been instrumental in empowering sexual assault survivors in Delhi by setting up the Crisis Intervention Centre (CIC) and Rape Crisis Cell (RCC) in DCW.
