A brilliant piece from @scroll_in that exposes the #SanghiCourt

//The court also expressed concern about women participating in the demonstrations. This is misguided. Women form a substantial percentage of the workforce in agriculture and are equal stakeholders. 1/n
The court has cited the Covid-19 pandemic and the winter to buttress its argument that women should be kept away from the protests. While this might hold true for the elderly, women and men are equally susceptible to cold and coronavirus. 2/n
This only reveals a patriarchal mind-set that looks at women as weaker.//


PS : DMK President @mkstalin welcomed this verdict as “a victory for farmers”. And all those “who matter” in DMK welcomed this verdict. 3/n
