From 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 in 'Picture This!: Painting the Women's Movement', published by Zubaan in 2014—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, economic empowerment, and resistance to globalizing corporations. Here, a sample of her artwork attests to the beauty in female solidarity.
