In a village in southern India, rural women enrolled in a national literacy program began to discuss domestic problems, the root of which was their husbands' addition to 'arak', the local alcohol. This was the beginning of an anti-liquor campaign that has spread across the entire state of Andhra Pradesh, empowering women.
