About the conference
Feminism in India is a set of movements aimed at defining, establishing, and defending equal political, economic, and social rights and equal opportunities for women in India. It is the pursuit of women’s rights within the society of India. Feminism does not particularly talk of equality and rights of a woman but it is more about compassion, respect and understanding from the male counterparts.
Postmodern Feminism is a particular kind of Postmodernism and a particular kind of feminist theory that has become prominent in feminist thinking over the last couple decades. The goal of postmodern feminism is to destabilize the patriarchal norms entrenched in society that have led to gender inequality.
