Women’s Wall Campaign

0156E449-BBA2-4F78-8021-D20D496EFAF6

Women marching as part of Kerala’s women’s wall campaign against male domination and religious subjugation…

Women from all over the world are invited to participate in this highly politicized campaign, which emerged after the highest court in India lifted an age-old custom that banned fertile women from entering a hill temple in Kerala.

Hundreds of men and women lit lamps in protest and many petitions have been filed urging the court to rethink its verdict.

Society stands divided today with many women standing for and against the verdict. Politicians have jumped in and the state – recovering from recent floods – seems to be on the edge at all times with protest marches and strikes.

The Women’s Wall campaign will be held on January 1. Good Luck, Kerala.
