Writing on the sources of feminist theology in Asia, Dr. Gabriele Dietrich of India focuses on the Samaritan woman who gives water to Jesus, the Syro-Phoenician woman who contradicts him, and the unnamed woman who anoints him, connecting these stories with issues of water, land, and sources of livelihood that Asian women face in daily life.

Professor of Social Analysis, Dr. Gabriele Dietrich says we should prevent war at all levels over water, food and power
For the first five years of her life, young Gabriele was on the run struggling to survive the devastation and scarcities of the post-war years with her mother and grandmother. Dr. Dietrich became a part of the students' movement in Berlin in the early 1960s and identified with the "free world" that asserted itself against socialist dictatorship. Today, when she sees the crushing of democratic struggles, -- with ordinary people throwing themselves in bravely and collectively -- (she cites the latest Kudankulam protest), she finds her "dream punctured. Dr. Dietrich is disturbed by people's preoccupations with the politics of their kinship system. "They tend to overlook the strong networks of support structures in social movements. For transforming communities from casteism, patriarchy and communalism, it is necessary to address the problem of marginalization," she says. In her work, Dr. Dietrich is recognized for having made insightful connections between patriarchy, caste, class, intensifying violence on nature and increasing militarization of the State. The tragic situation of the Palestinian people, the Vietnam war, the apartheid- regime in South Africa, the 1989 shoot -out at Tiananmen Square, the fall of the Berlin Wall, developments in Eastern Europe, the rise of communalism and fundamentalism under globalisation - all, in her opinion, have failed democratic socialism. "Dictated by weapons, capitalism has succeeded in projecting itself the winner and widened the rich-poor divide," she adds. Influences Two things influenced Dr. Dietrich. As a 10 -year -old, she witnessed the uprising of East German workers against the State for raising the norms of output and bringing the unions under strict control. Reading Anne Frank's diary helped her grasp the enormity of fascism and the need to live down racism. Much to the embarrassment of her family, she enrolled herself at the local church for Bible studies. She realized that even under fascism, the church had actively resisted Nazi tyranny. She did her Ph.D in history of religions and studied theology because she "wanted to work with people. Dr. Dietrich gravitated towards Dalit struggles intuitively. She worked for two years in Kizhvenmani, where 44 Dalits were burnt in 1968 in a hut where they took refuge during a wage dispute with a violent landlord. She feels Dalit and Adivasi struggles are most crucial in times of globalisation to protest the dominant development paradigm. "Organization building of workers in the informal sector is very important because that's where their livelihood is.," she stresses. From farm workers, tobacco workers, fisherfolk and construction labourers to women activists, she has put her stamp on every movement radiating an uncomplicated spirit of affability. As national convener of the National Alliance of People's Movements, Dr. Dietrich feels the good thing about the movement led by Medha Patkar is that different streams of socialism, Marxism, Ambedkarism and Gandhism are now coming together for dialogue and mutual understanding.
