#IndianWomenInHistory: Remembering The Untold Legacies of Indian Women

[tdc_zone type=”tdc_content”][vc_row][vc_column][td_block_text_with_title custom_title=”What is the #IndianWomenInHistory campaign?”]

March is celebrated as Women’s History Month across the world, in order to recognise and bring to light the contributions of women in shaping the modern world.

As you know, history has long been a Boys’ Club, from the people being written about to the people writing the books. Women’s voices, stories and contributions have been silenced in the making of history. Women’s History Month is a concerted effort to change that.

In that vein, since 2017 FII has been writing, creating and publishing long-form essays, posters and videos that talk about important #IndianWomenInHistory, or the role of Indian women in important historical movements. The possibilities are endless – women in
music, art, literature, dance, science, technology, religion, law and politics!

We have created an initial list of Indian women who have done ground-breaking work in their respective fields but haven’t received the acknowledgment they deserve. We profile their life and work every March, celebrating Women’s History Month

To participate in the campaign, please choose a personality and email us at info@feminisminindia.com with the name of your choice. We’re accepting submissions in English and Hindi.
