Hello, I am from India. I would be really grateful to you if you can send me information about the changing status of Indian women. Thank you, Suvita

Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM. I'm not sure where you are writing from--the United States or India, but I think that the best way to understand the "changing status of Indian Women," is to contact organizations working specifically with Indian women. For instance, there is the New York City based SAKHI (P.O. Box 20208, Greely Station, New York, NY 10001) and there are umbrella international groups such as Sisterhood is Global Foundation, ISIS International (E-mail), The Global Fund for Women, and DAWN (#4 Valley View, Fred Pilgrim Christ Church, Barbados, E-mail; #(246) 426-9288; (246) 426-3006).

There are also wonderful leading Indian feminists--such as Vandana Shiva, Devaki Jain, Anandati Roy, Prima Mathai Davis, etc.

I think that contacting one of these organizations and/or individuals would be the best way to answer your question. I hope that helps.
