Intersectional Feminism—Desi Style!

Dear FII reader,

Since 2014, Feminism in India has tirelessly created long-form stories, videos, podcasts, comics, infographics that have helped make feminism engaging and relevant to millennial and Gen Z women and youth. It’s been an amazing and fulfilling journey, made most rewarding by your faith and support. We have grown from a one woman army to an awesome all-women’s team of eleven, reaching a million people monthly. 

But even as our work has grown by leaps and bounds, so have our bills. And it’s getting tougher each day–especially in the midst of a pandemic–to sustain ad-free, independent and honest feminist journalism. To stay true to our shared cause, we are therefore launching a paid membership programme that offers premium content and benefits to our supporters. Each and every membership will help sustain our work and ensure we thrive in these uncertain times.

Warmly,
Japleen Pasricha
Founder-CEO

Through our platform, we aim to create a generation of young people that are aware and educated about feminism and social justice. Currently, FII publishes in English and Hindi and across a variety of mediums, i.e., text, video, audio, and posters. We need your support to continue our current operations and expand into more mediums and languages.
