Summary
Sampat Devi Pal was married at 12, and essentially illiterate. Today she leads a vibrant vigilante campaign that's securing women's rights across India: the Pink Gang. When Sheelu was arrested for stealing from a powerful politician in the badlands of India, she was sure that she would be forced to accept a prison sentence, not least because she alleged that she had been abused by a man in the politician's household. But then Sampat Devi Pal heard word of the charges, the formidable commander of the pink-sari-wearing, pink-baton-wielding, 20,000-strong Gulabi Gang, aka the 'Pink' Gang, decided to shake things up. This is the story of Sampat Devi Pal and her Pink Gang
