Women’s rights activist Kamla Bhasin, 75 years old, died today. The noted feminist and author was also known for being a part of ‘One Billion Rising’ campaign in South Asia among other important movements. She had been working on issues related to gender, development, peace and human rights for over three decades in India and other South Asian countries. 

She identified herself as a “social scientist by training” and wrote multiple books – a large number of them on feminism and women’s issues – since she started working on developmental issues in the 1970s.
