Watch The Amazing Impact Created By A Rural Newspaper Run By Marginalised Women in Uttar Pradesh

The woman filed an FIR twice (against her abusive husband), but the S.O (Station Office) didn’t listen. I published the story in Khabar Lahariya and gave the paper to the S.O. As soon as he read it, he got the husband arrested.
– A Khabar Lahariya Journalist

Khabar Lahariya is an eight-page weekly rural newspaper written, edited, illustrated, produced and marketed by a group of women – most of them from marginalised Dalit, Kol and Muslim communities. The publication began in 2002 in the Chitrakoot district of Uttar Pradesh in North India. It reaches over 600 villages and 80,000 readers/week.

Khabar Lahariya carries out news that is of primary importance to the masses in and around these areas. It strongly highlights the cases of violence against women, issues on Dalits and more.

In this video, Khabar Lahariya’s journalists share their experiences of how investigating and writing news stories has impacted people and how change has taken place as a result of their stories.
