As part of Misean Cara’s ’15 Years : 15 Stories’ media project, this podcast showcases the transformative power of Human Rights in India. Misean Cara is pleased to share this podcast with you as an extract to the critically acclaimed film ‘Mahila: A Women’s Movement Rising’ with permission from the Good Shepherd Sisters. For ages, Dalit women have suffered from triple oppression — from discrimination based on their gender, their caste and their impoverished economic class. The women of “Mahila” have found a rare voice and an important standing in their communities, and in the wider India. They’ve achieved this through education, through the access to credit and training to form businesses, and through awareness of their rights as citizens. The Good Shepherd sisters, who have advocated for women’s and Dalit’s rights in India for the past 30 years, lead this movement, supporting hundreds of girls and women out of oppression through education, economic justice and human rights.
