Hi Amy!

The information in feminist.com was very useful. Thanks.

Will you please tell me regarding feminism in India, how far has it been successful? Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Sowmya

   

From my very limited perspective, I think that feminism in India is very successful. It might not be called that, but I think that women are making gains, both in terms of political successes, and also in terms of community development, which is mostly undertaken by women. Look at specific examples like DAWN, The Grameen Bank, International Planned Parenthood. Those places are likely to lead you to specific examples.

Good luck.
