Many rural women lead lives ridden with neglect, poverty and abuse. According to RADION International, 1 in 2 women living in rural areas have been physically abused by their spouses and 20% of elderly women are abandoned by their families. This is further aggravated by their lack of access to proper sanitation and medical care. Without proper care and support, they’re forced to bear their burdens alone and likely to remain confined in a toxic routine of fear and abuse. Battered women inevitably return to their abusive spouses in fear of social stigma and neglected elderly eventually die unattended. Follow the story.
