Unpacking Digital India: A Feminist Commentary on Policy Agendas in the Digital Moment

Anita Gurumurthy, Nandini Chami and Sanjana Thomas

Journal of Information Policy, Vol. 6, 2016

This article is a feminist commentary on India’s national digital agenda in the current political context. The analysis pursues three main policy strands—social welfare, democracy, and economic growth, unpacking the meta-narrative of technology, gender, and development that characterizes the particular complexion of authoritarian neoliberalism reconstituting Indian democracy in digital times. The Indian case, the article submits, is reflective of the contemporary digital moment, not only marked by the evisceration of the transformative content of gender politics, but also constitutive of it. Under the circumstances, it is imperative to produce alternative feminist imaginaries of social, political, and economic discourse nationally and globally.
