National Workshop on Feminist Research on Gender, Poverty and Development in the Honour of Feminist, Economist and Activist, Devaki Jain, 18th November, 2013

September, 2015

18th November, 2013

ISST, supported by IDRC organised a felicitation event for its founder-director, Devaki jain in the year in which she turned 80. The event included a panel discussion chaired by Sayeed hameed with papers presented by Zoya Hasan, Renana Jhabvala and Mohan Rao, and a conversation between Devaki Jain, Urvashi Butalia and Indu Agnihotri. This was followed by a short documentary on Devaki Jain by feminist documentary film maker, Vani Subramanium. The discussions ranged from the contributions that Devaki Jain has made to the women's movement, institution and network building , as well as feminist research and scholarship. The event was very productive for inter-generational feminist learning which consistently gets flagged as important and necessary amongst women's groups for leadership building amongst young feminists, as well as for inculcating a sense of history and past struggle.
