Game Changers: Untold Stories Of Indian Feminists From The Past And The Present(Paperback Edition)
by Kirthi Jayakumar
‘She believed she could, so she did.’ —R.S. Grey Indian feminism, today, is at a precipice. As one of the most dynamic movements in the world that progressed during the British Raj, in recent times it has evolved into a staunch socio‐political movement. Yet, the stories of women who stood tall against patriarchy and exploitation have long been forgotten, and our past erased. Game Changers: untold stories of Indian feminists from the past and the present is an attempt to acquaint the current generation with the women who changed the face of history and to whom we owe many of our rights and liberties. Kirthi Jayakumar presents a compelling narrative of both the women who rose to fight the colonial power and the modern‐day trailblazers who continue to carry the torch forward. These women may have been wiped out from our minds, but their struggle and spirit cannot be expunged. This insightful and inspirational book seeks to ignite a fire within you to light the way for a future that is equal, just, and worth fighting for.
