ABOUT: Way back in 1989 “Keezhmanagar” was “the notorious hamlet”, frequently visited and harassed by the police as most of them were involved in boot legging as their occupation. Wife beating and family quarrels resulting in the abandonment of wife and neglect of children especially girl children were very common. The life span of the men declined dramatically due to frequent consumption of alcohol .Hence majority of the married women had become young widows in the age between 25 to 35.Thus many families had become women headed families during that period.

Mrs. B. Karlin (aged 30 years ),involved in philanthropic activities, R.Sumathi, (aged 25)first Graduate from the village, and A.Helan Joyes (aged 20) ,village health worker , , came together and started asking questions” Whether Wife beating is a prerogative of the husband ?Should it be accepted as “ inevitable” to marriage and family life? Should Women consider it as part of their fate? Can something be done to change the situation at individual, family,Women Group and community at large? This is the context in which “Keezhmanagar Mahalir Munnettra Sangam” (Keezhamanagar Women Development society) was formed in 1989 as a community based organization which was renamed in 1996 as “Women’s Education and Economic Development society for wider reach out and impact on women and children rights. They continue to provide collective leadership for WEEDS in the capacity of President, Treasurer and Secretary respectively, along with another 4 female board members
