The New Age Freedom Fighters

The New Age Freedom Fighters

India is the land of a billion people, 3 crore Gods, 22 languages and over 720 dialects. Year 2016 marks the 70th year since the independence of India from the British rule.

However the battle of independence is yet to finish.

For half of the population of this country, there is a long road of struggles to ‘Independence’.

Unless the women of our country don’t achieve freedom from the patriarchal chains of the society, we wouldn’t be truly independent.

No matter how thorny the road is, there are women who have lead the battle from the front and shaped the feminist movement in India. These women have braved the waters of misogyny and look how!
Feministaa salutes these Indian women achievers and supports their fight for freedom of women. Meet the new age Indian freedom fighters.

Laxmi is an acid attack survivor and speaks for the rights of acid attack victims. She was attacked at the age of 15 and since then she has been advocating the restriction of acid sales in the country. Her petition made the supreme court order central and state governments to regulate the sale of acid. She went ahead to form an NGO Chhanv Foundation to support all the women who have been victims of acid abuse.

These top inspiring women of India refuse to follow norms set by the society. They are leading the battle of independence for new age India and we can only wish that the period of feudalism ends soon.

For half the Earth and half the sky,
We shall fight, we shall win.
