Today I learned about the Gulabi Gang " a vigilante group which group first appeared in Banda district, Uttar Pradesh, as a response to widespread domestic abuse and other violence against women."
"Data Satbodh Sain founded the Gulabi Gang in 2006 in response to the lack of police support for victims of domestic violence. Most, if not all, are members of lower castes. The gang focuses its attention on India's most impoverished region, with about half of its population facing poverty, lack of education, and other concerns.The gang fights for the rights of women regardless of their caste. There are also male members, such as Jai Prakash Shivhari, who joined to stand in solidarity against issues like government corruption, child marriages, and dowry deaths."
