Some differences among Indian women are well known – for example, those based on class, ethnicity, caste, and religion. There is also a range of other differences – arising from marital status, position within the family, the sex of a woman’s children, whether she has a disability – which are less widely noted. There is little written about the challenges posed by differences among Indian women for organising women at the grass roots. Various reasons exist for this. This article is a small effort to bridge the gap in the literature, in the hope that more will follow on this theme.
