‘Our Feminism Is Not In Opposition With Masculinity. It’s Not A Race’

It’s still an F-word many associate with hairy armpits, women turning into men and other such uncomfortable myths. But ask the Sarabhais and you will hear feminine, beauty and power as their attributes for feminism. It’s also their most prized possession, their inheritance, their reason to celebrate. It may seem from afar that this is a family that was born into privilege and wealth. They can ‘afford’ to be free. But if you listen in, you will hear and see shards of pain, rejection, triumph, failure, loss and gain as inevitable in three generations of continued struggle. It is a conversation worth every last fight. Revati Laul speaks to Mrinalini (94), Mallika (58) andAnahita Sarabhai (22)
