    S01E12: Trans rights movement and allyship. Ft. Jamal Siddiqui

    S01E12: Trans rights movement and allyship. Ft. Jamal Siddiqui

    From conversations about our health, to the strict rules that govern every aspect of our lives - our policies, language and ideals are increasingly cis heteronormative in this world. One often, even within the ambit of feminism forgets to take into account the trans rights movement.

    Joining our hosts in this episode of Intersectional Feminism Desi Style is Jamal Siddiqui, a trans man, and co-founder of Transmen Collective, who speaks about his experience of navigating cis spaces, the intersectionalities within the trans rights movement and the various things one must keep in mind to be a better trans ally.

    S01E11: What is Modern Love? Ft. Samar Halarnkar

    S01E11: What is Modern Love? Ft. Samar Halarnkar

    Love flows and love ebbs, so to try to put love within the shackles and boundaries of caste, faith, gender and sexuality is a mute point. However several agencies in our life be it family, friends or even the State are now trying to paint a different picture of love. One that's riddled by binaries of our own creation. But that doesn't always have to be the case and many rebel against this notion of love.

    In this episode of Intersectional Feminism—Desi Style!, joining our hosts Nishtha and Pragya is Samar Halarnkar, the co-founder of India Love Project. Tune in to listen about love, politics and all that falls in between!

    S01E10: How is Feminism Political? Ft. Team FII

    S01E10: How is Feminism Political? Ft. Team FII

    As feminists, the one thing we are exhausted of everyone telling us is that Feminism should be centred around 'women issues' and has no business speaking about national politics - but what people often forget is that the history of feminist struggles has always been political, be it black feminists who were at the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement in the US or the Dalit feminist movement in India or Shaheen Bagh’s Muslim women protestors or even the women farmers who have been resisting the recent farm bills - the fight for equal rights and gender justice cannot be divorced from its socio-political contexts.

    Joining our hosts in this episode of Intersectional Feminism—Desi Style! is team FII! Tune in to hear how they bust the myth that feminism is not political!

    S01E09: Are we talking about our sexual health enough? Ft. Dr. Tanaya Narendra aka Dr. Cuterus!

    S01E09: Are we talking about our sexual health enough? Ft. Dr. Tanaya Narendra aka Dr. Cuterus!

    That conversations around sexual and reproductive health in our country are not nearly common enough is a fact no one can deny. We’ve all probably skipped the famous chapter of ‘reproduction’ in our biology textbooks, and been given maybe one workshop on puberty and periods. Conversations around safe sex, consent and sex positivity? Forget about it! But in a country with a population like ours - talking about sex is probably the need of the hour!

    Tune into this episode where our hosts Nishtha and Pragya are joined by the internet’s favourite doctor, Dr. Tanaya Narendra a.k.a Dr. Cuterus as they talk about health, sex, bodies, patriarchy and much much more!
