The magazine has printed a photograph of a group of 20 women who had come to join the peasant movement on the Tikari border of Delhi. Time magazine has told how women have also stood on the protest front for months. The article is titled - 'I Cannot Be Intimidated. I Cannot Be Bought. That is, we cannot be blamed, we cannot be bought. It is further written in Archil that most of the women had arrived from the rural areas of Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh.
Time magazine further wrote that these women were surprised that she was an activist providing cooking and cleaning services at protest sites around Delhi, not an equal share in the movement.
