    I’d heard about the feminist group meetings held last winter but had not read any reports as yet.

    Reading this one was a double treat: to learn about the breadth of issues discussed in one session and the overall success of making a difficult choice and going with your gut (men not speaking, only listening).

    As someone who (once upon a time) participated in some campaigns in Lahore, reading this brings to the fore questions that are easier not to avoid. About myself, about hurt / exclusion caused by omission / lack of consciousness /lack of concern.

    Women are broadly speaking right. “Progressive” men may understand class and even caste, but rarely sex.
