Program Title: WINGS #02-18 Self-Employed Women's Association (SEWA) Part 2
Description: SEWA [pronounced SAY vah] is a sisterhood of nearly 1.5 million women, organized locally and by trades. It operates in 16 states of India, plus 3 other countries. Their philosophy is based on Ghandian values of simplicity, truthfulness and non-violence, and on non-hierarchical growth. This program covers examples of their projects, ranging from challenging employers and government to include home-based workers in social protection schemes, to identifying cleaning the trash off the road as part of the care economy. They also start community radio stations!
