Feminism is still a complex subject in India. There are polar opposite opinions, and it has pushed even feminists to radical choices. Sindhu Rajasekaran's new book 'Smashing the Patriarchy: A Guide for the 21st Century Indian Woman' points them out. She sheds light on how feminist women are forced to stand with all women despite disagreements. The stereotypes around hijab, glamorous models, and housewives are also discussed in the book. It is helpful in understanding the concepts of liberty, equality, and sorority.
