"We were never consulted in
important matters of the Panchayat (local government). Panchayat meetings were not even taking place. Now, when all four of us get together in our capacity as Elected Women Representatives
and go to the Panchayat, demanding for meetings to be held, the male Sarpanch and Gram Sevak are left with no option but to conduct such
meetings. This also demonstrates the need for women leaders to unite, cooperate and support each other in a patriarchal society like ours." - Rekha, Ward Panch in Rajasthan #India in #empower
