Amid rising support for feminist ideas from various quarters, there are still some including celebrities who continue to get it wrong while several in India oppose it in the name of “defending culture”. In India, the push for gender equality gender equality is constantly battling patriarchal values in the society.

The latest “media personality” to voice opposition to feminism is right wing activist Rahul Easwer, who says that he isn’t anti-woman, but simply anti-feminist.



While you might be wondering what he exactly meant there, Rahul Easwer went on a streak of making up terms to put his point across, as he said that the right wing was against “Left Western Feminism” and that he supported “Indian Womanism + Familism”



It might be a tough task to wrap your head around so many new ‘isms’ invented by Easwer, Twitter was as usual quick and ruthless when it came to taking Easwer to task.










Even as people keep failing to understand that feminism is basically all about gender equality, the movement is progressing in India despite opposition from a patriarchal mindset.
