As a woman of color, my first interactions with feminist organizations and activists are not my best memories. I wasn’t born a feminist but I became one despite all the odds and the toxic feminism that I came across along the way.
For International Father’s Day, I shared this little message from the heart with my father, who is a wonderful parent but who I’ve lost that deep connection with as I’ve gotten older. Fathers and daughters have a complicated relationship anywhere, but especially so in the oppressive, patriarchal society of India. Thank you dada.
