By Ramesh Prakash and S.V. BhaduriBHUBANESWAR, India — As a teenager, Ramesha had no friends, no family and no job.
Then she started her first job, teaching high school girls in Mumbai, where she later earned her PhD in human rights studies.
Ramesha, now 26, is a professor of education at a government college in the northern state of Tamil Nadu.
For the past year, she has been traveling around India as part of her work on “Bharat Yatra,” a feminist advocacy project aimed at helping women in rural India.
As part of the project, Rameh and her colleagues are raising awareness about issues related to gender inequality, including harassment, sexual harassment and dowry discrimination.
“I started this project because I felt that women need support from all sectors, especially in the rural areas,” Ramesa said.
“In the past, there was no social pressure for women to support their husbands, who were their fathers.
But now women are forced to support men and this has created problems.”
The government of India, which has a strong feminist tradition, is struggling to change the perception of women, said K.P. Narasimha Rao, a professor at the University of the Western Ghats in Mumbai.
In a country where women make up just 13 percent of the workforce, there are widespread misconceptions about how the country treats women, Rao said.
For instance, a study conducted by the United Nations World Population Fund found that the percentage of women in the workforce is about 10 percent higher in India than in the U.S., where the average female worker is just 23 years old.
“India has a lot of problems, including inequality and poverty,” said Sushil Khandelwal, a senior fellow at the Centre for Development Policy Studies.
“But the problem is the way the government treats women is one of the biggest issues.
There is a lack of awareness and awareness is needed.
The only way to change that is to change culture.”
The Yatra, an annual four-day, 250-kilometer-long trek through rural areas of India that starts on July 14, has become a symbol of empowerment for women in India, where the government says it has seen an increase in the number of female college graduates and women getting jobs in the fields.
But the project has also become a source of controversy among women in Tamil Nadu who say the government has made it a mission to help women who have been raped, abused and discriminated against by their husbands.
Rates of rape and sexual harassment have been rising, especially among women, the women’s rights activists say.
“If I have a bad day, it is a big problem.
If I go to work, I have to face a lot more pressure.
The harassment is much worse than what is happening now,” said Ramesheva Rao, who is also a teacher at a women’s college in Chitrakaran district of Tamil Pradesh.”
We need to make a decision now and not wait for the government to take action,” said Khandelswal, who said he was surprised by the government’s decision to support the project.”
When I saw that the government is paying for this, I was quite shocked,” he said.”
There are many issues in India where it is not the woman who is suffering, but the man.”
Rameshevat, who has studied women’s education and is a lecturer at the Women’s College in Chittoor, said she and her students often hear stories about women who were raped and abused by their spouses, who are often reluctant to share their story because of stigma attached to it.
Rameh, who says that her husband cheated on her, said that in her own family, she was always told that her marriage would not last long if her husband went back to his hometown.
“He would leave for another town and stay there for a month or two and then return,” Rameesh said.
The government has not been willing to provide financial assistance to help support the students, she said.
The women’s advocacy group Women for Women in the Classrooms, which organized the “Bhat Yatri” project, said it plans to continue the campaign for the next two years.
Raja said that the work of the Yatra and other feminist projects like “Bihar Yatra” are critical to the fight for equal rights.
“The feminist movement is important for changing the culture,” Rao said, adding that if the government does not change its approach to issues like sexual harassment, gender inequality and dowries, it will fail.
Rao said that despite being a young woman, Ragesha had the courage to come forward and speak up.
“She has a very strong sense of her own power and she has courage to say, ‘I will not be
