Abstract

Rise of feminism in India and the subsequent evolution of the women’s studies have been highlighting women’s issues from different perspectives – sexuality, gender, caste, etc. The long, painful suffering and the struggle for existence were the two key reasons behind the evolution of Indian feminism. Feminist thoughts and beliefs from the western countries have significantly impacted and directed the feminist culture that evolved in India. Women today have realised the importance of education, literacy and self-empowerment to curtail the patriarchal domination and comfort. Many Indian feminists from the past have contributed their efforts towards exploring female subjectivity for establishing their identity, which was once imposed as a part of patriarchal society. Before the evolution of the feminist waves in India, women were never acknowledged as individuals or autonomous beings. They had to face many obstacles, even while stepping out of the house. During such difficult times, women writers stood tall with their bold writings to encourage Indian women in believing and equipping themselves as a major weapon for driving the social change. Islamic feminist movements in India began with the aim of achieving the goals of gender equality under the Muslims Law. A significant development witnessed in the past few years has been seen through the emergence and evolution of Muslim women’s activism for promoting Muslim women’s rights. The purpose of the paper is to explore the perspective of Muslim women feminist authors on different gender issues.
