Chattisgarh resident Suniti Yadav also known as the Tree Woman received an award under the social bravery category, for starting an eco feminist movement to save forests.The “green” bug bit her when she realized that some people were trying to cut 200-year-old trees to make a tea shop in her ares.“I collected as many women as I could in the area and convinced them to participate in the movement. We all went and tied rachis to the trees and threatened the people who wanted to cut them.By that evening 1100 women had tied rachis to those trees and within the week, 17000 people had joined the movement,”said Suniti.
