A week or so back, Apu wrote a post about a lack in desi-centric content on feminism. So I said, why don’t we (bloggers) all write about what feminism means to us? Apu’s response was this great post about what it means to be a feminist. Then, she tagged me on it and I wrote about theory and practice in India (post below).
Since then, a few more of our friends have joined in. Dee writes that she doesn’t believe in ‘ism’s but can see a use for feminism in rural India. Desigirl writes of her own experiences and how she came to see herself as a feminist. So many of us can relate. In fact, most of us have tried to explain it with our personal experiences, like Sakshi Juneja does in her post about how blogging brought feminism into her life and Art does here in her post about the “F” word.
Missing the male perspective? Well, here’s Kokonad who sent me his two cents here. The issue he’s addressing can be found at this link. I wish there were more… and maybe there soon will. More updates on the way.
A big thank you to all those who took it up. I hope more of you’ll join us.
