Women in marginalised communities in India suffer many disadvantages in life, simply for being women. Lack of schooling, combined with the household chores and drudgery that traditionally befalls women, hampers their career opportunities, consequently becoming financially dependent on men and lacking economic independence and the freedom to make choices. Poor knowledge of personal healthcare and hygiene impacts women’s health with potentially serious consequences, while issues such as early or forced marriage can have lifelong impacts on women’s wellbeing.
