Who Reads Manushi?


Apart from a whole range of concerned women of every age, background and class, Manushi is also read by a wide variety of social and political activists, students, teachers, professionals and people interested in women’s issues and struggles in South Asia.

Even though we cannot directly reach the poor and marginalised whose issues Manushi gives prime focus we have managed to build connections with a large number of those working with rural and urban poor women, who are either making efforts to organise them politically or acting as social or health workers. The Hindi publication was widely used in literacy classes; some translate articles from Manushi in the language of their region and read it aloud to illiterate women, while many others who could not use it directly because of language barriers have tried to incorporate some of Manushi’s ideas into their work. In this way, very slowly, the ideas and information in Manushi have had a wide impact.
