women in Rajasthan
We always talk about how India needs more women leaders in politics, business, sports etc. but somehow, we overlook talking about the need for strong female leadership in most backward areas of our country.This is where women like Chhavi Rajawat come into the picture. She is the first female Sarpanch of the country who also holds an MBA degree.
In college, we get more and more aware of the bitter reality every day- sowing a faint seed of rebellion within us. And most of us either let laziness yank it out of us, or just fail to water it with action. But not Vasundhara Choudhary, the 21 year old sarpanch!
There’s a potential revolution brewing amongst the oppressed child brides of Rajasthan. Some might even say they are playing with fire.
Norti Bai isn’t your everyday sarpanch, she is a pioneer. Having led a village near Ajmer out of its woes over five years of a revolutionary term, she now risks not getting re-elected because she hasn’t passed 8th grade.
