Roderick Long on India's Feminist Vigilantes

|

In her book Pink Sari Revolution, Amana Fontanella-Khan tells the story of the Pink Gang, a grassroots vigilante group of otherwise ordinary women who wear pink saris, carry bamboo staffs, and proceed en masse to confront rapists, abusive husbands, and corrupt policemen and other public officials. Their success, Roderick Long writes in his review, offers lessons both for feminists and for libertarians.
