Meera, Kavita, Shanti…and the others
Kavita, Meera, Shanti and the others have had to fight to make their dreams happen. Together they have started their own newspaper, Khabar Laharia. The unusual thing about the editorial team is that it is made up entirely of women, who are all members of low castes like the untouchables. In the state of Uttar Pradesh, where illiteracy is higher than the national average, this handful of women journalists battles every day to bring information to their fellow men… and women.
