Remembering Anuradha Gandhy: “People’s War has shattered the hesitations of the women of Dandakaranya!”

Her life was cut short with an untimely death due to disease in 2008. But her spirit and her words continue to guide the ongoing revolutionary movement. As March 8, International Women’s Day, approaches, we offer this interview with « Anu » from 2001. — Frontlines ed.]
