I spend most of my time trying to smash the patriarchy, keep my privilege (of being a cis-upper middle-class woman) in check, and hoarding books. In my free time, I travel and work in the field of gender research and writing. I believe that equal rights, poetry, and pani puri can change the world.
Women's Day Whatsapp forwards serve to remind me that womanhood is only celebrated when it is convenient. When it is sanitised, stripped of anything remotely political, swathed in pink and devoid of accountability.
