Women in Maharashtra’s drought-hit areas take up farming to ensure their families have enough to eat and their kids can go to school.
Women in Osmanabad are taking over the fate of their families and standing up for themselves. Even as drought continues to force farmers to suicide in the Marathwada region of Maharashtra, these women have refused to go down that path.
