International Women's Day 2017: Latha Nair gives a new lease of life to children with brittle bones
In the run up to International Women’s Day on 8 March, we profile little known women in South India who have fought against all odds in their local communities to bring forth change and transformation. While some of these women stand out as shining examples of the power of determination, there are others who must battle misogyny and harassment. With this series, we highlight not just the trials and tribulations faced by women in all walks of life, but also how individual women are triumphing against caste, patriarchy and discrimination. In part seven of the series, read about how Latha Nair, a retired government employee gives legs to children with a rare disease.
