    Manisha Tokle (in green), a human rights activist, visits sugarcane cutters of Kasari Bodkha in Beed District, Maharashtra, before they migrate for the harvest season in the south of the country.
    Since more than a decade, she’s fighting for farmers and laborers rights in the region. She meets regularly with sugarcane cutters who had a hysterectomy to collect their testimonies about their health and their work conditions. In this small village alone, more than 15 women cutters had a hysterectomy in a private hospital.
    In May 2019, she was among the activists disclosing the scandal of coerced hysterectomies among sugarcane workers in India, after several years of work and surveys. Indian medias soon relayed the information, pushing the government to take over the case and form a State Committee to conduct official surveys in Beed District.
    So far, the Committee has only issued recommandations after their survey, but no concrete regulations or sanctions were implemented yet.

Plus tard, elle donne naissance à deuxième enfant au milieu des plantations, prématurément en raison de l’intense travail physique qu’elle subit au quotidien. Le manque d’infrastructure médicale ou d’aide dans les champs ont eu raison de son fils: il est décédé cinq jours plus tard.

    Asha Jogband is 29 years old, and cuts sugarcane since she's barely 11 years old, first with her parents then with her husband after marrying him at 14.
    On her third pregnancy, she had a miscarriage, and consulted a doctor in a Private Hospital in the state of Karnataka, where she was cutting.
    The doctor told her that he could solve her issues, but if it’s cancer it would be a very long and expensive treatment, so she might as well remove everything - especially since she "might have cancer in any case in the future".
    The surgery costed her 35,000 rupees ($420). She couldn't borrow money to her mukadam since she already owned him too much, so she turned to a private loaner. It took her three years to pay him back.
    Since then, she spent another 20'000 rupees because of health complications linked to the surgery. Kasari Bodkha, Beed District.
