Margaret Jeoji hails from a dalit Christian family in Trichy, Tamil Nadu, a state where the local media are all mouth-pieces of political parties, where the upper caste refuses to let go of its orthodoxy and where the women have been suppressed in the name of tradition. Margaret is a staunch human rights activist and feminist who has been working with community and women’s groups. She is exasperated with the media in her state which alternates between mindless entertainment and party propaganda and has no space for dalits, tribals and women. Margaret wants to cover the issues and concerns of her community from a women’s perspective.
