Watch: women farmers take centre stage at protest sites

Mar 08, 2021 22:53 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Endless rows of women clothed in bright yellow and green colours, representing the hues of harvest, sat attentively under a collage of coloured canopies at Delhi borders on Monday.

Passionate speeches by fellow women farmers captured the attention of thousands of these women who have been protesting against the Centre’s new farm laws.

On International Women’s Day, hundreds of women took to streets while raising slogans of "kisan ekta" (farmer unity) and some broke into nonchalant rhythmic steps of ‘bhangra’.

Similar scenes played out at all three protest sites around the national capital - Singhu, Tikri and Ghazipur borders - to celebrate women's contribution to the 100-day strong farmers movement against the farm laws.
