IWD 2023: Women in Panna Unite to Voice Concerns
Women from eight villages of Panna District in Madhya Pradesh, came together to celebrate International Women's Day. The occasion served as a platform for women to share their stories of hardship and suffering caused by displacement, diseases, and other local problems.
They also compiled village-wise concerns into representations for the government authorities, outlining their local needs and appealing for urgent redressal of their grievances.
The representations included demands for FRA pattas (land titles), financial assistance and rehabilitation for tuberculosis (TB) and silicosis patients, access to government schemes, clean drinking water, employment under the rural job guarantee programme, and better road connectivity to villages.
