At about 5:30 on Friday evening, four women created history by being the first to ever pay their respect at the Shani Shingnapur temple in Maharashtra. Their salutations coming at the end of a long fight for justice, a fight against misogyny, dogma, politicians and even the govt.
After 400 years women have finally won the right to pray at the Shani Shingnapur shrine. Will other shrines now follow?
