Did feminism in India start in December 2012 in reaction to the Delhi gang-rape? Though sometimes it feels so, we know it isn’t true. Does feminism begin and end with responses to sexual violence? That’s another thing we know isn’t true.
This Independence Day, why not come together to celebrate a terrific arc of desi feminist activity? The world of feminist documentary filmmaking is fearless in its range of subjects. Fearless in its experimenting with forms of filmmaking and storytelling. Fearless in how it lovingly embraces all the different ways to be an Indian woman.
On the Independence Day weekend, August 15-16, The Ladies Finger and the experimental space Godrej India Culture Lab come together to present Wandering Women: The Feminist Docu Film Festival of India. The weekend will be a selection of this fantastic oeuvre that celebrates wandering women, women who cross the line, women who frankly don’t care that there is a line.
