Hum Gunahgaar Auratein [ We Sinful Women ]

The IAWRT Seminar Hum Gunahgaar Auratein / We Sinful Women will be held on 8th March, 2014 at Max Mueller Bhavan, New Delhi. A part of the 10th IAWRT Asian Women’s Film Festival, the day-long seminar celebrates art and resistance by women in South Asia. 

The event is organised around a single question: how do women artists and activists in South Asia strategise and survive in repressive environments living as they do in a world of suicide bombing, drone attacks, and ruthless militarism in different names and guises. What is the power of art and social activism, if it can be swept away by guns, bombs, violence and bigotry?

Conceived of and coordinated by Dr. Uma Chakravarti and Anupama Chandra
