Gender And Politics In Khap Courtyards

The wrestlers' protest surpassed the boundaries of the national capital ad reached rural India as men, women, and local leaders became part of the mass movement addressing gender-based violence and sexual harassment in the workplace. The protest has gained a lot of momentum on the ground, however, strong forces of Brahmanical patriarchy continue to divide people's stance and belief on women's narratives and experiences. While the Khaps extend their unconditional support to the protesters against BJP MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, youth and men in the village display a different opinion as they side with the ruling party at the Centre. Women's voices in this politics remain marginal and unheard.
