At what point in your life did you consider yourself a feminist? Was it an event or a process?
I tried a lot to accustom myself with the mindset and Tradition but failed. At the time I realised that I am not from the crowd. I need to raise a voice against it rather convincing myself to be according to it. Many time it happens that when I have been suggested to choose to do particular thing being Girl , I always do opposite to break the mindset.
Who most influenced your awareness of your feminism?
Well, I inspired by myself only. As I said, after many attempts, my self denied me to give up and since the day I never look back. I am trying my best to break the stereotypes and cultural norms which are the hurdles in a way of empowerment as well as laws are helpless against these tradition and cultural norms. The process is no doubt a very difficult as many women play the role of villain for other women when it comes to women empowerment but this is not a reason to give up.
In what ways has your feminism informed your life choices?
My different thought which can make me "feminist" has actually provided me a platform to grow up. Women have always been dependent and doing sacrifice at every level whether its her Education, Financial Independence, health or dignity. Thought of feminism keep me away from doing all this and I am happy for that.
In what ways do you share your feminism with others?
Frankly telling, majority of people find it rubbish and find the women like me "non cultural" who are acting against culture but I am least concern. Culture and tradition are all different thing. Tradition is self made which we are using for our comfort. Culture is our identity but we compromise with it as it's tough to follow and it may stop you from doing all the things you are mad for. So for our convenience we just becoming hurdle on the way of women in name of tradition.
Describe your vision of a feminist world.
We always talk about to empower women and want to make Girls like men but in most of the case it won't be possible untill we reduce their workload. Certain work is already been their duty almost and They can't escape from it. So to make it possible First we have to remove the mindset that work is being divided to different gender. Next Generation should be raised in atmosphere where they can be away from such mindset. Since a birth every child should learn to be human than Independent as sometime Independence mislead young mind.
How I Define Feminism:
It's just equality and what I mean is same respect for all the family member irrespective of gender and age. feminism is to consider everyone as human. No one has right to misuse his power / population to suppress others. Feminism is the way to make all understand No one has set the rules and regulation for different gender / tribe. Its all self made.
A person who is having extra ordinary nature, anybody can like to talk to her. Who is honest, talkative and fun loving person. Determined to bring a change as far as social hurdle is concern as She believes its the major hurdle in empowerment of women.
