Are all feminists women?

Every year, in the month of March, the number of articles and media bites by women and about women reaches a peak, thanks to International Women’s Day, celebrated on the 8th of March. It is important for women to speak about opportunities and inclusion, for safe workplaces and equal pay, for recognition and reward, for all that women do. But is it only women who need to speak up for their cause? This is not just a “woman’s problem”, as it is sometimes labelled. For women to participate equally in society while balancing all the other responsibilities they shoulder, men need to speak up, show up and support the cause side by side with the women who make their life worthwhile.

Here’s a thought-provoking article by my friend, Radha Rangarajan, who has written eloquently about the first feminist in her life, her father.
