Tarabai Shinde

Tarabai Shinde

The Subaltern Feminist (Penguin Petit)

Ramachandra Guha
Select Preferred Format

The gods themselves bring destruction on women, so is it any wonder you do the same?’

Now, more than ever, it has become imperative that we talk about women’s rights and work towards gender equality. The feminist movement, in fact, took roots in India nearly a century ago, as can be seen from the life and work of Tarabai Shinde.

Tarabai Shinde was obscure in her time, and remains so in ours. But her writing, if not her life, compels our serious attention. Extremely relevant and hard-hitting, her work is indeed one of the most powerful pieces of social criticism ever written by an Indian.

Read on, as Ramachandra Guha sheds light on the inspiring thoughts and writings of the activist in ‘Tarabai Shinde: The Subaltern Feminist’.
