Poster Women is an archive of over 1500 posters from the Indian Women's Movement, collected over an 18 month period from all over India. Put together by Zubaan, this unique archive demonstrates the dynamism, richness and variety of this important movement. Spanning the period from the 70s to the present day, the collection is divided into a number of key campaigns that cover areas such as violence, health, political participation, the environment, religion and communalism, literacy, rights and marginalization. Also included are posters on different themes such as the use of the goddess metaphor, or the marking of particular days that are important to the movement. The collection has been sourced from over 200 groups all over the country. A full digital record of the Poster Women collection is available on CD.
