Neera Desai was one of the founding members of the Indian Association for Women's Studies, Gujarat Association of women’s Studies and Maharashtra Association of women’s Studies. In 1981, under her leadership, the first national conference on women’s studies was organised that set the tone by NETWORKING among academicians, researchers, teachers, students, administrators, policy makers and political activists for women’s cause. Everyone was touched by her simplicity, hardwork and spirit of voluntarism. Especially for all those who had the opportunity to work with her---under her so closely found that she was such a source of knowledge, warmth, understanding, depth, guidance and dependability. She bonded very well with Veena Mazumdar, Kumud Sharma and Latika Sarkar from CWDS.
