Kamla Bhasin's Speech at 4 World Conference on Women's Shelters



Kamla Bhasin gives an inspiring speech about forging solidarity and alliances between movements and communities. She talks about making Asia the Land of Rising Daughters and says that we are survivors and thrivers. In a patriarchal world, everyday is a situation of war and patriarchy has close connections with class, race, caste, militarisation and religious fanaticism. In such times everyone is looking for a safe space and shelter. Hence it becomes important that we create our shelters like a feminist nursery, A Garden of Hope and A City of Joy. We need to transform hatred into love and solidarity.
