Several international media outlets have praised female politicians for their leadership in curbing the coronavirus. But when this is done at the risk of promoting gender essentialism, there is cause for concern regarding how these opinions might implicate the larger goal of equality.
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.
