Womanist Party of India (also called Bharatiya Streevadi Paksh), is a political party in India. Its core issue is the emancipation of women. The WPI was founded in Mumbai on October 31, 2003. The WPI president is Varsha Kale.[1]

The party decided to call itself 'womanist' as they consider the word 'feminist' to carry an upper-class connotation in India.
