Sohela Nazneen and Maheen Sultan have contributed a chapter on contemporary feminist politics in Bangladesh. They have two major concerns: how have feminists dealt with NGO-isation processes and how have they adapted to the post-NGO-ised phase? What had been the nature of generational shifts and their impact on feminist activism in Bangladesh? NGO-isation has helped by linking women's organisations to different social sectors, providing increased outreach and it has also created a divide between the voluntary and professional ways of the feminist involvement.
