Abstract

An Indian and a student of Women's and Gender Studies program, my curiosity to study feminism at peak. Before admitting to this program, I never payed serious attention to the feminist study, feminist ethics, and feminist pedagogy. Along with coming across these ideas and reading them thoroughly, I was also introduced to Transnational feminism, which I found very intriguing. Their aim towards inclusive feminism across the countries regardless of race and ethnicity is not just the area of studies but also a necessity in the twentieth century distorted world. Hence, in this paper, as an Indian and as an international student at UNI, I want to explore my position and contribution to the field of study by interrogating how can solidarity among different group of feminism can be achieved and what should be our approach/method to achieve it.
