Good! Indian women deserve more respect in their country!

Women have played a very vital role in all protests in India. Wether it was the citizenship law protests in 2019 and 2020 or the farm law protests of 2021, women have been at the forefront. If we get out of our current shipwreck with authoritarianism, it’ll be because of women activists, students and citizens really.

India has 400 million people who are dependent on farming. Thousands who turned up for protest are minuscule percentage. Most farmers support the reform bill. There are elections in five states in March in India. Modi’s party rules only in one. The election results will show how much support or opposition is for the reform bill.
