Grassroots Feminist Political Posters in India

University of Wisconsin Digital Collections Center.

India has been home to a vibrant women’s movement (or rather women’s movements) with a global influence. Historically, grassroots women’s organizations -- initiated and sustained by farmers, students, workers and housewives alike -- have been the backbone of the women’s movement.

Olakh is a feminist organization based in Vadodara, Gujarat, India. The poster collection represented in this archive is physically located in the offices of the feminist organization, Olakh (meaning Identity). Members of Olakh have designed and produced some of these posters.  Many others they have collected from different women’s groups and feminist organizations from all over India.
