This year, the Sarojini Naidu Prize turns ten. The Prize, instituted by The Hunger Project-India in 2000, was first awarded in 2001 to mark the beginning of a partnership with the print media. Given annually "For Best Reporting on Women and Panchayati Raj," it was launched to promote and encourage sustained reporting in the media on the issue of women's political participation in Panchayats and foster an environment of positive opinion that supports their leadership.
