Happy Independence Day! #india #67yearsold
Covering women’s rights issues for so many years in India, I still find the number of ways women and girls are abused and discriminated against unfathomable.
From their discrimination in accessing health care, education and employment opportunities, to their brutal rapes and murders. From having acid thrown in their faces, to being trafficked for domestic or sexual slavery. From their suicides due to dowry demands, to their molestation on buses and trains. It often feels like a bottomless pit.
