Celebrate Women’s Voices!
‘Hum Gunahgaar Aurtein (We Sinful Women)’, “It is we sinful women… who don’t sell our lives, who don’t bow our heads, who don’t fold our hands together.”, wrote feminist Urdu poet Kishwar Naheed.
Her poem rings true even today as we at Amnesty International India invite you to celebrate women who have not allowed violence and threats silence their voices.
Sign up for the event below.
We will begin our celebration of women’s voices by presenting a feminist poetry reading by:
Fouzia Dastango (First woman Dastango of India), Ritu Menon (Feminist Publisher and Writer) and Zakia Soman (Feminist and Co-founder of the Bharatiya Muslim Mahila Andolan).
Followed by a panel discussion on women’s experiences on online spaces with:
Rana Ayyub (Award winning author and journalist), Neha Dixit (Award Winning Independent Journalist), Kiruba Munusamy (Advocate, Supreme Court of India and Dalit rights activist) and Kavita Krishnan (Feminist activist, Politburo member of the CPI(ML) and Secretary of the AlPWA)
