Is the Hindu Goddess a Feminist

The question of the Hindu goddess's feminism is embedded within the larger question of the instrumentality of religion in the post-colonial nation both for a 'secular' politics and for women's struggles in mass movements and thus, moves far afield of a de-contextualised if more focused consideration of an answer. This article attempts to problematise some of the connections between the Hindu goddess and feminism, between religion and women and the locations, theoretical and political, from where disagreement is articulated.
