New Delhi: JNU Vice Chancellor Santishree Dhulipudi Pandit said on Tuesday that feminism is not a western concept but “very integral” to Indic civilisation. She also added that there could not have been a greater feminist than Draupadi and Sita in Mahabharata and Ramayana respectively.

Dhulipudi was speaking at an event where she was given the Shrimati Sushma Swaraj Stree Shakti Samman-2022. The vice-chancellor urged the students interested in the intellectual narrative of modern India to look into Indian feminists.

“Feminism is not a western concept but a concept very integral in Indic civilisation. There could not have been a greater feminist than Draupadi or Sita as the first single mother,” she was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.

“I come from the south of the country, we have Kannagi and Manimekalai. I urge many students who are interested in the intellectual narrative of modern India to look into these figures,” Professor Dhulipudi said.
