Maharashtra sex workers now have the opportunity o express their views and discuss their issues using a community radio. A non-government organization (NGO) has set up a radio station exclusively for sex workers in Ahmednagar.
The NGO has also given training to some sex workers to work in the radio station.
Girish Kulkarni, the director of the NGO, said that the radio station would give sex workers a way to express their problems.
Currently, the radio channel airs 14 hours of programming, including songs and entertainment content.
Meena Pathak, a sex worker and a radio jockey, said this initiative would encourage sex workers to express themselves more openly.
"Earlier, we had to go to women, but now because of this radio channel we won't have to go to them, they can directly contact us, they will benefit from it," she said.
