Writings on Feminism: From Margin to Centre stands as a landmark reference text in the field of Feminism through its carefully articulated subject matter and novel perspectives. The book offers fresh insight into the theory of feminism where gender differences are advanced to the limelight in the 21st century and it also aims at assimilating how facets of a person's social and political identities merges to generate myriad modes of discrimination and privilege. After comprehending the well-organized and scholarly chapters, the readers can identify various aspects of intersectional elements present in their society. Ranging from the inception of Feminism to the Contemporary significance of Feminism, the book explores the microscopic representation of women's rights and their empowerment against existing differentiation, injustice and violation on the accounts of caste, sex, disability, gender, race, class, sexuality, religion, physical appearance, height etc…This endeavour to re-read the narrative both from the lens of being privileged or not so privileged brings in inclusivity. Never has it been more relevant than this year, this decade, this century and this millennium to understand the variegated meanings and interpretations of feminism. The non-binaries can no longer be dismissed, a new defensive has to pave way to empower the difference.
