How Begum Rokeya dared women to dream

Rokeya Sakhawat Hossain, considered to be India's first Bengali Muslim Feminist, challenged the social status quo of her time and ridiculed outmoded gender practices while preaching the relevance of equality, women’s education and freedom. Her feminist utopian story 'Sultana's Dream' attempted to make role reversals showing men as the inferior sex and questioned the violence and discrimination perpetuated through the category of gender, providing a critique of patriarchy and the affect of it on women’s lives. Watch this SabrangIndia exclusive video to get a glimpse of Begum Rokeya's legacy and listen to what her admirers have to say about her.
