Bhasin’s work, that spans across 35 years, focuses on gender, education, human development and the media.She lives in New Delhi, India. She is best known for her work on the NGO Sangat, a South Asian network of feminists. In 1995, she recited a refurbished, feminist version of the popular poem Azadi (Freedom) in a conference.

On the occasion of her birthday, let us look at some of her powerful quotes or remarks:
1.My rape does not defile the honour of my community!

Once again, a very happy birthday to the legend. We love you, Kamla!
