V. Mohini Giri: “Women’s Struggles in India: Historical Precedents, Contemporary Actions” – September 24, 2009

For nearly two hundred years, Indian women and men have engaged in efforts to improve the lives of women in India and to create a more just society.  Dr. Giri places this history of struggle in political, social, and cultural context, while focusing much of her talk on India’s contemporary women’s movement and on projects aimed at the empowerment of women. A life long champion of Indian women’s rights, and especially widows’ rights, Rajiv Gandhi Award recipient, Dr. Giri places her leadership at the National Commission for Women, the Women’s Initiative for Peace in South Asia, and other organizations in the contexts of women’s movements in India and around the world.
