Dear All,

As the Faculty Coordinator of the Centre for Women, Law and Social Change Blog, I am most excited about this initiative as it is one project wherein I have worked closely with the students. I am truly touched by their commitment to social concerns, and how they, as citizens this world, are using their capabilities to express their feelings towards a rapidly transforming society.

This blog will be an ongoing initiative which aims to encourage students to write about the issues that they feel most passionate about.

I truly hope that the students will take this initiative as a serious medium of communicating with the community.

Thank you,

Dr Keerty Nakray

Dear All,

Having experienced the diabolical realities of the, far from inclusive, society; it is, perhaps, evident: Our Sexed bodies are a Battleground.

A Battleground, with intersections of Power, Desire, and Culture; that is reflective of patriarchy, communal schisms, bouts of capitalism, and yet somehow a liberal democracy. A Battleground which has, for centuries, rendered certain groups powerless, desireless, and has actively pushed them beyond the spectrum of mainstream culture. Under this facade of apparent freedom, there have always been undercurrents of dissent; an ongoing fight for justice. Justice for every group that has been incessantly denigrated. As I study it and continue to understand it, Feminism seems to embrace such a movement, and it is the work of Women, and it is the work of Feminists, that has the faculty to expand imaginations, deepen discourses, and to bring tranquillity upon this Battleground. I hope to be part of such a movement.

Today, people around the world are changing the dynamics of Human Relationships. Although as disparaged as cherished, it is impossible for one not to be cognizant of it. It is a movement that has undeniable and indefinitely becomes a slice of the popular discourse; a cornerstone of every culture that has questioned and rebelled against the system of prevalent patriarchy in the world.

My Aim, as the Editor of Centre for Women, Law and Social Change, is to encourage such conversations and to furnish a stage for such conversations with freedom, liberation, and captivating emancipation.

Thank you,

Kavya Palavalasa
