Philosophies, opinion, lectures and practical thoughts about feminism and women's equity are expressed quite freely in public forum. Phrases such as gender parity and gender equity are echoing loudly in countries across the globe. The foundation for these views being debated in public had been laid for the past many years. In Tamil Nadu, reformist talks and about thoughts women's liberation and women's equity were forcefully put forward by ‘Thanthai’ Periyar E.V. Ramasamy (from 17.9.1879 to 24.12.1973). Periyar used media such as stage-speeches and journals to deliver his lectures. One such medium was the Kudiyarasu journal. Feminist views expressed in the journal were of multi-dimensional in nature. The very objective of this thesis is to go deep into these views about women's equity which appeared in this journal. Thanks to this research, the multi-dimensional approach of Kudiyarasu in preaching about women's equity comes to the fore.
