Women village heads: A mixed bag, some empowered, some are just proxy...

Bhan Sahu has participated in a 2 day conference of women village heads of Ambagarh Chouki in Rajnandgaon district in Chhattisgarh and says that her impression is mixed. Govt has given 33% reservation to women in Panchayati Raj ( it is supposed to increase to 50% for all states soon). She met some Sarpanchs who are doing their work well. But some Adivasi women sarpanchs did not know anything about their rights and duties. They did not know why they were in the meeting. So it is obvious what is their role in Panchayat.
