Agnes KharshiingSocial Services - Activist (Meghalaya, India) 2012
AGNES KHARSHIING – Rock-ribbed and steel-spiritedis a women’s rights activist in Northeast India. She is the President of the Civil Society Women’s Organization (CSWO).
Intrepid, indomitable and unflappable in her resolve, she can take anything and anyone head-on when it comes to her principles. She is the ideal prototype of an activist and who is honest to the core.
She is a clarion call that has curled out of the valleys of Meghalaya. And the ‘Call’ pertains to RTI (Right to Information), which is basic to Democracy.
The born crusader has unleashed a whole movement that is spreading like wild fire, today.
