Location: India

Shombari Mahato, 36 years old, lives in Dhatkidih. In 2012, when she went to a local pond to wash herself, the other women in the village chased her away, asking her “How many men have you eaten? Two or three?”. Few days before, she had been accused by a village widow of trying to kill her daughter. For security reasons, she accepted to be interviewed only far away from her house. The tattoo on her hand represents the symbol of the Adivasi tribe, it states that Adivasi will not take away anything from the earth when they die, except this tattoo, it is their only belonging.
