Upendra Baxi: feminism, law, and the human

  • Shirin M. RaiEmail author


This short tribute to Upendra Baxi’s work builds a conversation between his insights and my own work. I show how Baxi’s oeuvre inspires me to think through some of the key feminist debates, ranging from what it means to be human to the politics of solidarity. I do this by discussing Baxi’s intellectual as well as activist work, which has inspired scholars and those engaged in social movement campaigns for gender justice. This continuing solidarity across borders of thinking and acting is truly inspirational.
