HOME > ABOUT HWF
A number of Hindu women ranging from sovereigns and warriors like Rani Durgawati, Rani Ahilyabai Holkar, Rani Chinamma, Rani Lakshmibai of Jhansi and Rani Avantibai, to teachers such as Madalsa and Mata Jijabai to devotees like Andal Devi, Mira Bai, Laleshwari and Kannagi, and revolutionaries like Sister Nivedita, Durga Bhabhi and Preetilata, have courageously stepped forward to provide critical and vital support to Hindu society. Unfortunately, the role of Hindu women in the Hindu resurgence has largely gone unnoticed and unacknowledged. Furthermore, the number of women participating in leadership positions in the recent Hindu resurgence has declined to an unacceptable level. The Hindu Women Forum has been created to mobilise Hindu women and to reverse this trend. The Hindu Women Forum strongly believes in the power and potential of Hindu women. HWF seeks to bring Hindu women from diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and professions who can support each other in all aspects of human endeavour as well as advocate the Hindu perspective from neighbourhoods to college campuses to the wider society.
