TED Talk: Learning from a Barefoot Movement

Video

Sanjit Roy founded the Barefoot college in Tilonia, Rajasthan, a non-government organisation that has been providing basic services and solutions to problems in rural communities, with the objective of making them self-sufficient and sustainable. These ‘Barefoot solutions’ can be broadly categorised into solar energy, water, education, health care, rural handicrafts, people’s action, communication, women’s empowerment and wasteland development.

Many women, according to Rick Santorum in his book “It Takes a Family: Conservatism and the Common Good”, have told him that it is more “socially affirming to work outside the home than to give up their careers to take care of their children.”

What happened in America so that mothers and fathers who leave their children in the care of someone else — or worse yet, home alone after school between three and six in the afternoon — find themselves more affirmed by society? Here, we can thank the influence of radical feminism

Sadly the propaganda campaign launched in the 1960s has taken root

The radical feminists succeeded in undermining the traditional family and convincing women that professional accomplishments are the key to happiness
