GULABI GANG – The Warriors!

In a small, forgotten village in Uttar Pradesh, a remarkable movement was born from a single act of defiance. Sampat Pal Devi, witnessing a woman being savagely beaten by her husband, bravely intervened. When met with insults and threats, she returned the next day with five other women armed with bamboo sticks. Together, they delivered a resounding message to the abuser, restoring dignity to his victim and sparking a wave of change.

Word of their courageous stand spread like wildfire, and soon, women from all corners sought out Sampat Pal Devi and her companions for help. Out of this grew the Gulabi Gang, a formidable force clad in pink saris, armed with bamboo sticks, and determined to fight back against the perpetrators of crimes against women.

Today, the Gulabi Gang is more than a movement; it is a revolution. They stand against child marriages, empower women to defend themselves, and shame male chauvinists publicly. Their pink saris and bamboo sticks symbolize courage and resilience, inspiring women across the nation to stand up for their rights. The Gulabi Gang is a testament to the power of unity, courage, and determination in the face of adversity.
