Roshni's TED Talk opens with a life-changing conversation with one of her Postgraduate students on the China campus of the University of Nottingham. It then follows her evolving relationship with feminism from the influence of global figures to discovering local feminist legacies, from teaching theory to being in political action. She argues that feminism is not a spectator’s game, nor a virtual one that gets played out on the web or through Twitter storms. It involves investing of oneself in the biggest, the most daring, the most impossible dreams, as feminists of the previous waves have done. In this talk, Roshni advocates for a 4th wave feminism that is about bridge-building at the highest humanitarian, spiritual, political levels through examples of women involved in meaningful action that has the potential to change the course of history. she also explores how, after an absence of 20 years abroad, she has built a bridge between her postcolonial and feminist engagements in the form of political activism in Mauritius.
