"In a world where all is unstable, and nought can endure, but is swept onwards at once in the hurrying whirlpool of change; where a man, if he is to keep erect at all, must always be advancing and moving, like an acrobat on a rope—in such a world, happiness in inconceivable. How can it dwell where, as Plato says, continual Becoming and never Being is the sole form of existence? In the first place, a man never is happy, but spends his whole life in striving after something which he thinks will make him so; he seldom attains his goal, and when he does, it is only to be disappointed; he is mostly shipwrecked in the end, and comes into harbor with masts and rigging gone. And then, it is all one whether he has been happy or miserable; for his life was never anything more than a present moment always vanishing; and now it is over."

One such example is a group of women who decided to “strike” against rape culture by calling into work sick, or not doing chores. The reason? They wanted to show that they’re “sick of rape culture.”

They’re not the only people who want to bring an end to gender inequality in India. BuzzFeed's Rega Jha asked 46 Indians why the country needs more feminism. The answers were powerful, and in some cases, universal.
