Bilkis Bano Biography

Bilkis Bano (also known as Bilkis Dadi or Grandmother Bilkis) is an octogenarian Indian activist who was at the forefront of protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019 (CAA) passed by the central Government of India. She received national and international coverage during the sit-in protest in Shaheen Bagh in Delhi. For her role in the Shaheen Bagh protest, she came to be known as one of the 'Dadis of Shaheen Bagh' (English: Grandmothers of Shaheen Bagh) and went on to be listed in Time 100 and 100 Women (BBC) in 2020. She was named "Woman of the Year" in The World's 500 Most Influential Muslims for 2020.

In September 2020, she was included in Time magazine's Time 100 list of the 100 most influential people in 2020 in the icons category. In her profile, journalist and author Rana Ayyub described her as 'the voice of the marginalised'. In November 2020, BBC listed Bilkis Dadi in the list of 100 inspiring and influential women from around the world for 2020. BBC quotes her saying “Women should feel empowered to step out of their homes and raise their voice, especially against injustice. If they don't leave their homes, how will they showcase their strength?”
