Panel Discussion on Gender and Violence

Academic

  • Prof. Nair and Ms. Butalia in conversation. 

The Departments of International Relations and Governance Studies and History organized the first event in the Feminist Dialogue Series, which is conceptualized and led by Dr. Sruthi Muraleedharan (IRGS) and Dr. Divya Kannan (History).

The event, a panel discussion, involved Prof. Janaki Nair and Ms. Urvashi Butalia in conversation over how the women's movement in India has dealt with the question of violence. While Ms. Butalia traced the history of the discussion of violence within the women's movement in India, Prof. Nair clarified the key issues in the relationship between law and women's rights. The speakers' presentations were followed by Q&A and student interventions. More events in this interdepartmental series are lined-up for the months ahead.
