This feature is based on Meena Gopal and Sabala's article, "Body, Gender and Sexuality: Politics of Being and Belonging," that looks at the diverse construction of women's bodies, the role of the women’s movement in dismantling these notions of the body, and the complex unresolved concerns raised by the interface of feminists with movements of marginalised peoples.
