Khabar Lahariya is India’s only women-run rural digital news network. Khabar Lahariya is known for its ‘real’ journalism from rural India. It is a testament to the fact that in a democracy, a powerful and independent fourth estate is essential as any other service, in every single village or town. Our rural journalism follows the everyday stories of everyday people in areas that are completely out of the spotlight of media attention. We have been called a powerful local watchdog, an instrument for enforcing robust grassroots governance and accountability. Our rural journalism is feminist. We report on issues of violence against women with an astute understanding of gender and caste structures within which this violence is situated. News reports in Khabar Lahariya question structures of power and inequity in the personal sphere of the family, as well as in the public realm.
