Prof. Kumari Jayawardena at protest site


Prof. Kumari Jayawardena, a foremost feminist scholar and regional and global icon, came to the Galle Face site this week to support the on-going protests demanding President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s resignation.

The arrival of Prof. Jayawardena, who has done a great deal of academic work through the Society of Sociologists, doing extensive research on themes such as the rise of the bourgeoisie in Sri Lanka, gender and ethnicity, has been highly appreciated by many leading intellectuals.

“I urge that there will be economic and political stability soon in a democratic Sri Lanka,” said Prof. Jayawardena.
