Description

The autonomous women’s movement in India is remarkable for its energy and staying power, and for the impact it has had on progressive social change in the country.

What constitutes a feminist memoir? What makes it different from any other memorable recounting? Twenty women who have made a critical contribution to the women’s, and women’s studies, movements recall the last quarter century of activism, taking as its starting point the impossibility of separating the personal from the political, or the private from the public.

Each memoir vividly covers the most momentous and memorable developments and campaigns of this period, recounting its triumphs and disappointments, speaking about alliances forged, reflecting on relationships lost -- and found.

Their inspiring, poignant, humorous and always politically engaged memoirs are not just personal stories, they are a quintessentially feminist recall of a movement they helped to shape.

Memoirists include:

1. Indira Jaising
2. Vandana Shiva
3. Kamla Bhasin
4. Bina Agarwal
5. Uma Chakravarti
6. Vasanth Kannabiran
7. Gabriele Dietrich
8. Pamela Philipose
9. Sheba Chhachhi
10. Saheli
11. Norma Alvares
12. Ruth Vanita
13. Devaki Jain
14. Nalini Nayak
15. Meera Velayudhan
16. Roshmi Goswami
17. Nirmala Banerjee
18. Vibhuti Patel
19. Ilina Sen
20. Ritu Menon.

Their inspiring, poignant, humorous and always politically engaged memoirs are not just personal stories, they are a quintessentially feminist recall of a movement they helped to shape.
