Pink Is the Colour of Justice

Pink Sari Revolution

I have a book review up at Reason, about the pink-robed, staff-wielding feminist vigilantes of India.

Two out-takes from the review:

I strongly suspect that the pink-skinned, staff-wielding, Indian-accented character of Peppi Bow in the Clone Wars television cartoon is inspired by Sampat.

Perhaps the Pink Gang could be seen as a low-tech, and non-anonymous, version of Anonymous.

My favourite line that survived into the final version: “Picture, if you can, Ayn Rand as an illiterate altruist.”

    Roderick, you use the evil, British Empire spelling of words like colour?

    I prefer to think of it as liberating the better spelling from British imperial monopolistic control.
