Empowering Single Women in Chandrapur District of Maharashtra

Pratibha Ukey
Posted August 6, 2019 from India

Chandrapur is a rural district in Maharashtra state. On 30th August we organized an event there. In this event, single women and local stakeholders of local villages came to participate. Who are these single women? They are widows, women who deserted by husband and women who didn't marry. 

These women do not have rights to property. We are empowering them to fight for their property rights. We have just started the process by meeting them and mobilizing them. We will keep on our efforts and share here the progress. Our aim is to see all these women become legal owners of their property and land and government schemes.

Hello, Pratibha,

Congratulations for organizing these meetings! Yes, women should be legal owners to land and properties, too. Looking forward to reading your updates.

Keep up the great work! Thanks for sharing!

Dear Pratibha,
What important work you are doing! The rights of women to own land is a basic and too often lacking human right. It is a right all unmarried and/or widowed women should have. It is so good to know that you are challenging this, and I see from your profile that you have been doing this for a long time. It is so good to know that these many rural women have been able to meet you, have your support, and know that this is an unfair man-made decision.
In sisterhood,
Tam
