Hinduism's Feminine Energy, Shakti is at The Core of Indian Culture
We are particularly fascinated by Madhu Kishwar's take on feminism. Madhu Purnima Kishwar, born in 1951 in Delhi, is an Indian academic, writer, human rights and women’s rights activist. She is Senior Fellow at the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies, Delhi, and Director of the Indic Studies Project based at CSDS which aims to promote the study of Religions and Cultures in the Indic Civilization. Madhu is founder editor of Manushi--a journal about women published since 1979. She is founder President of Manushi Sangathan -- a forum for research based activist interventions. It works for democratic reforms that will promote greater social justice and strengthen human rights, especially for women.
