Udupi: Karnataka High Court Judge H.V.G. Ramesh said on Saturday that Stree Shakti Women’s self-help groups (SHGs) have played a stellar role in making women economically independent. He was speaking at a legal awareness camp on “Women and co-operative principles” organised by the District Legal Services Authority, Udupi Bar Association and the Badagabettu Pattin Sahakara Sangha, here.

The SHGs could also take up social causes such as prevention of atrocities on women and awareness campaigns on dowry harassment.
