Jarjum Ete is currently the Chairperson of the Arunachal Pradesh State Commission on Women. She belongs to the Garo tribe of Arunachal Pradesh. The tribe practices child marriage, polygamy and is basically a patriarchal tribe where women are not equal nor do they have inheritance and other rights. Jarjum Ete got married when she was just seventeen and completed her studies after marriage. Her husband is at present a civil engineer with the government. In 1985 she joined the Arunachal Pradesh Women’s Welfare Society and became an active volunteer and later rose to be its spokesperson. The APWWS has taken up many issues like women’s participation in panchayats, customary laws, need for a state women’s commission and anti-liquor laws. Jarjum herself has very strong views on legalisation of prostitution. She was one of the participants to the Beijing Conference and has also visited Pakistan and other countries.
