How We Put It Together


When we began to think of putting together a magazine, we felt that we could no longer remain a university women’s group, so we started contacting various people in Delhi. We made a special attempt to involve women to play a leading role this endeavour. Since there were very, very few active social organisations in those days, we had to mobilise personal friends, acquaintances, and women active in different fields, in political parties, unions, and so on to come together to support the launch of Manushi. This process brought together a very loose group of about 50 people who developed the idea further in a series of discussions attended by a very heterogeneous and fluctuating group of women and some male sympathizers. Some attended only one or two meetings, others came as and when they could, while two of us took the responsibility of keeping it going.
