Mina Swaminathan, along with A. Mangai, has put Tamil feminist theatre on the local and national map. They have been involved in many aspects of the Tamil theatre. Among the varied facets of their work are their efforts in propagating traditional the atre, helping women drama performers of Tamil Nadu, creating awareness on the condition of the transgendered (the Aravanis) and organising women’s theatre festivals. “All my work with women and for women has been made possible because of my partnership with Mangai who has been the director of the plays presented by the M.S. Swaminathan Research Foundation,” Mina emphasises. “Mangai and I have had a harmonious and rewarding working partnership for 15 years.”
