03 January 2019 Current Affairs:Lakhs of women from across Kerala formed a 620-km long Women’s Wall, that stretched from Kasargod in northern Kerala to the southernmost district of Thiruvananthapuram, to uphold gender equality and renaissance values.
This was a state-sponsored move done in the backdrop of protests in Sabarimala due to Supreme Court’s decision to all women to pray at the Ayyappa shrine.
Health minister K K Shylaja was the leader of the human chain at Kasargod whereas leader Brinda Karat was the last person at the end of the chain in Thiruvananthapuram.
