Time Magazine Cover Features Women Leading India’s Farmers’ Protests

Speaking to the Time magazine, Amandeep Kaur, a farmer from Talwandi in Punjab, said, “This law will kill us, will destroy what little we have.”

The farmers’ protests in India are a revolutionary movement against the three farm laws. This movement has seen various turns and has witnessed thousands of male and female farmers come together and continue to battle for their rights for over three months.

Thus, as a way to celebrate the solidarity of all the female farmers’ who have been relentlessly protesting, the American news magazine Time, in its March edition, has featured some women leading India’s farmers’ protests on the international cover page. The cover also intends to attach importance to international woman’s day and thus Titled ‘On the Frontlines of India’s Farmer Protest‘, the cover displays close to 20 women at the Tikri border on the outskirts of Delhi. The cover story was thus tweeted on Friday, a day before the protests enter their 100th day.

The article titled ‘I Cannot Be Intimidated. I Cannot Be Bought.’ The Women Leading India’s Farmers’ Protests“, speaks volumes about how thousands of farmers have been the leading force of the protests at different sites on the outskirts of Delhi, demanding the repeal of the three farm laws.

Speaking to the magazine, Amandeep Kaur, a farmer from Talwandi in Punjab, said, “This law will kill us, will destroy what little we have.”

Jasbir Kaur Nat,  who is a Punjab Kisan Union member and is mobilizing farmers at the Tikri protest site, addressed how women are not given the equivalent status as male farmers. She expressed her disappointment of how women were treated as “mere care workers providing cooking and cleaning services at these sites.” She mentioned, “Their labor is immense but invisible. Women are changing women here. They are claiming their identities as farmers.”

The magazine also reported that the number of woman farmers has tremendously increased ever since the CJI of India SA Bobde in January asked lawyers to convince the elderly people and women to withdraw from the protests and go back home. “Something snapped within us when we heard the government tell the women to go back home,” 74-year-old Jasbir Kaur from Rampur in western Uttar Pradesh told Time. “Why should we go back? This is not just the men’s protest. We toil in the fields alongside the men. Who are we – if not farmers?”

Sudesh Goyat, a gender rights activist also talked about how she was the only woman when the protests initially began. But the court’s comments motivated more and more women to defy the societal norms and contribute to their own movement. Speaking to Time she said,  “They came with their families. They came with other women. They came alone. It’s no less than a miracle.”

Thus, TIME magazine mentioned her in a social media post as well.
