March 21 is celebrated annually as World Poetry Day and we thought we’d take a look at all the fiery feminist poets of India. We realised no one has made a list of popular and powerful feminist poets of India, so we went ahead and made one. These seven feminist Poets have spoken to many through their poetry and had many stand up and take notice of the feminist movement and femininity. We have included both contemporary poets and poets of the days gone by. So here are the seven Indian Feminist Poets and some bits of their feminist poetry who put fire in people’s hearts through words.
The list is not an exhaustive list (for we’re humans) and are always looking for your suggestions. Add the poets we missed in the comments section.
