About this product
- DescriptionFrom her home in a small village in the Kutch district of Gujarat, Dalit artist Radhaben Garwa has documented the rural women's movement in Western India and beyond through her drawings. Her images - more than two hundred of them gathered here - tell stories of the women from her village and from the Kutch Mahila Vikas Sangathan, the NGO she works with, in their campaigns for women's rights, ecomic empowerment, and resistance to globalizing corporations. In her sequences of pictures, Garwa illustrates such scenes as feminist gatherings against violence and discrimination, the encroachment of large corporations in farmlands, and what the world may look like to a poor woman in a village in India. With an afterword by leading feminist journalist Kalpana Sharma, this full-color compendium of an artist's work is a testament to the courage, wit, and wisdom of those involved in the Indian women's movement.
- Author BiographyRadhaben Garwa has been drawing and painting the women's movement for the past sixteen years. Sushma Iyengar was one of the founders of KMVS, an organization of rural women based in Kutch, Gujarat.
