Building Youth Feminist Power with(in) Haiyya (Article)

Article by Aprajita Pandey, Haiyya leader speaking about 7 years of experience in leading youth feminist movement


With 2022 we have entered another instrumental year towards our fight for justice, dignity and sustainability. Two years of this long pandemic & sufferings, systemic injustice & ongoing oppression in our face, collapsing democratic institutions & processes, and increasing impact of climate crisis — things do look impossible AND urgent!

As the world changes rapidly around us; our bodies, minds and hearts are experiencing despair, hopelessness and fatigue in a very real sense. What then gives us the hope to go on? What then offers us the courage to show up? What then is the source of our morality? These questions have kept me thinking and up at days and nights.

For some of us it’s a fight for survival & existence, for some of us it’s a fight for what’s right, for some about possibilities to live better, and for some it’s a fight to heal, repair & resolve (Maybe ALL for some).
