Celebrating Women’s day or making advertisements on women empowerment, is merely “lip service” to the fairer sex, according to writer Urvashi Butalia, who feels that Indians are yet to “sort out” the concept of feminism.

“We have not sorted feminism out We have seen it (the concept of women’s day) moving out of the streets, where women would be demonstrating for rights into the corporate space, the ad space, into the govt space. I think all of that is really lip service. But it also marks the beginning of some change,” Butalia, who is the founder of feminist publishing house Zubaan, said.
