Kavita Ramdas | Radical Women, Embracing Tradition

“Feminism, unlike almost every other social movement, is not a struggle against a distinct oppressor — it’s not the ruling class or the occupiers or the colonizers — it’s against a deeply held set of beliefs and assumptions that we women, far too often, hold ourselves.” Kavita Ramdas

Kavita Ramdas, former president and CEO of the Global Fund for Women, tells stories about three incredibly strong, fearless women who, while holding to their traditional ways of life, have simultaneously made great strides for their communities. In the West feminism has a particular “look,” a particular voice, but Ramdas illustrates that there are many ways to be a feminist. Watch her TEDTalk to understand how that is possible.
