Women’s Day

Every year some 3000 Rajasthani women gather for this special event arranged by Barefoot College, designed as a way to help women understand their basic human rights. Any changes in the law, such as pensions or the guaranteed basic wage, are explained via the spoken word and further demonstrated through puppet shows, as illiteracy is high in these regions. There are advisors on hand to answer questions.
