The Indian Women’s Movement in the City of New Delhi: Between Dissenting Militant Identity and Development Politics

 

My research on women’s/feminist movements at the beginning of the 1990s has uncovered a world-wide phenomenon of institutionalization of mobilizations of the cause of women, which, in countries of the southern hemisphere, takes on a particular shape, that of NGO-ization. This phenomenon, the result of liberalism and of globalization, is expressed as a structural transformation of women’s movements, which are taking over institutional political spaces and taking on the attributes of NGOs, becoming more professionalized, less political and developing a greater dependence on external institutional funding and policies.

The study of the Mouvement Indien des Femmes in New Delhi (MIFD), which is a network of urban women characterized by strong heterogeneity and a particular and long history, reveals that this NGO-ization phenomenon, within a specific environment, is not uniform and is accompanied by resistances, adaptations and conflicts that are internal to the MIFD.

Calling on the tools and concepts of political anthropology and gender studies, I seek to show through my work the way in which militant identity, protean and dynamic, which mobilizes specific paradigms and a distinctive history, structures the MIFD and contributes to perpetuating its role as an actor of the opposition.
