Feminism In India (FII) is curating a crowdsourced list of social justice collectives (SJCs) on Indian campuses. These collectives could include feminist, queer, anti-caste and disability rights groups, Women Development Cells (WDCs), Internal Complaints Committees (ICCs), Equal Opportunity Cells (EOCs), Enabling Units, among others. The aim of this list is to empower students and ensure they have access to such groups and safe spaces on their campuses. To add to FII’s crowdsourced list of social justice collectives, please fill this form.
FII aims to become a feminist resource center and a one-stop platform for anything related to feminism in India and this is the first step. The methodology of this list has been inspired from the Gynaecologists We Trust list

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Feminism In India (FII) is an award-winning digital intersectional feminist platform to learn, educate and develop a feminist sensibility among the youth. FII amplifies the voices of women and marginalized communities using tools of art, media, culture, technology and community.
College is a tumultuous time, and often the first time that a lot of students are coming to terms with their identities and learning about social justice movements and sociopolitical ideologies. The presence of these campus support groups and collectives ease this transition and help students find like-minded peers and seniors, as well as function as safe spaces for students who are from marginalised communities. In cases of sexual harassment, a student can contact the ICC of their college and register their complaint. This list could help them navigate their institutions and form meaningful connections and allow them to build or join communities. This list will also reveal to some extent, which educational institutions are supportive of students’ movements and their level of inclusivity.
The principle of FII has always been about amplifying the voices of marginalised groups and challenging the status quo. So far, we have focussed primarily on our online magazine, building diversity and amplifying the stories and experiences of marginalized communities on digital media. We are now moving to Phase 2, and hope to soon become a one-stop feminist resource centre about anything and everything to do with Indian feminism. This list is the first step of Phase 2!
