An Introduction

Men Doing Feminism in India

Aiming to bring critical attention to men's involvement in feminist social research in India, an introduction to a collection of essays on what it means to be a "man" and do "feminism."

In what ways can men ally with feminist initiatives such that the critical edge of feminism is enhanced and not blunted?

The current climate in which men’s role in feminist social movements seems to have garnered much public attention and the, as yet, unwritten history of men’s varied engagements with feminisms in Indian academia provide the political and theoretical provocation for this collection of articles. The intellectual field of research on women and gender in India has largely been a women’s domain; historically the corpus of feminist literature in the region has had few male contributors. And yet, there have been some men in Indian higher education who have engaged with feminist thought and continue to employ feminist modes of inquiry in their academic and activist work.
