Author(s): Raisa Rafaela Serrano Muñoz
Abstract: Today's feminist movement in India is more varied and active than ever before. A wide range of concerns, including sexual abuse and harassment, reproductive rights, and labor rights, are being worked on by different grassroots organizations. The women's movement is becoming more intersectional as a result of the efforts of numerous activists to defend the rights of Dalit women, Muslim women, tribal women, and other underrepresented groups. There have been a number of significant demonstrations and campaigns over the past few years that have aided in increasing awareness and bringing about change. The #MeToo movement, the #Justice for Our Daughters initiative, and the widespread demonstrations against the Kathua and Unnao rape cases are a few instances. This paper describes the public figures’ profiles who fight against inequality which is still suffering in a contemporary period in the country influencing the fourth phase of the Women’s Movement.
