Concern for women: National Federation of Indian Women (NFIW) vice-president, Anne Raja, has said a majority of villages do not have sustainable economies, and only through oppression of women and lower castes can the landlords, upper castes, and government officials support a better life for themselves. The social injustice that underlines this perennial problem cannot be addressed by a frontal attack on women's issues by targeting women alone, but it requires a comprehensive effort, in which, communities develop through sustainable and integrated programs that impact everyone, she observed.
