Dialogue on Feminism on 9th March 2016

On 9th March 2016, Kamla Bhasin deconstructed the main concepts, myths and facts about Feminism, Gender, Masculinity and Patriarchy with a group of 70 concerned individuals from diverse professional and private backgrounds.

Kamla Bhasin’s visit to Olakh ended with a one-day seminar which gave us another chance to listen to her unequaled way of analyzing social structures and human relationships.
