Women of Shaheen Bagh: Posters of protest

The Womens led movements across India, starting with that of Shaheen Bagh (New Delhi) in December 2019, has strongly questioned and countered a number of oppressive laws and actions of the Indian Government, including it’s new communal citizenship act.  As an artist inspired by this struggle and being part of it for many days, I began drawing posters to mobilise support early on, and that caught attention. It helped people understand the voices of women, the complexity of a struggle as long as this, and the hope it brings.

Here are some of these posters ( made in English and Hindi, shared widely over Instagram and Facebook and also in print).
