Maaje Zevwe (‘mother tongue’ in Kashmiri) is a Kashmiri women-led magazine which presents critical, appreciative, and analytical perspectives across the significant themes of Kashmiri language/literature, culture, politics and resistance from the feminist lens. The women behind Maaje Zevwe recognize the need for a Kashmiri women-found and women-led space, where we redefine the various dynamics of being a ‘Kashmiri’—boldly, critically and unapologetically.


At Maaje Zevwe, we believe in the power of lived experiences and aim to document the collective and individual memory of Kashmiri women against systematic erasure. We run upon the principle of being non-conformist and promote the feministic analysis of the Kashmiri society and culture—in a way that not only helps in its preservation but doesn’t hesitate to point out the blatant sexism, homophobia and discriminatory practices in the same.

Thank you! Happy Reading!
