Antifeminism in India Misogyny in India’s Patriarchal Politics

India is the world’s largest democracy, leading the narrative of inclusivity, sovereignty, pluralism, and gender parity from the front. But as the country celebrates its 75th year of independence with much pomp and show, nearly 50% of its population of women and girls remain excluded from enjoying their equal rights across the country and struggle to find a rightful spot in its patriarchal political space.
