Poster Women

In 2006 Zubaan began a new and fascinating project: Poster Women, a visual mapping of the women’s movement in India through the posters the movement had produced. The idea was to ask what the history of the movement would look like through its posters and the visual images it had used, the various campaigns that the movement has engaged with and the forms these campaigns have taken over a period of time. When we initiated this project we were convinced that it was important to collect and document posters from the movement because the women’s movement has been—and remains—an extremely rich, complex and multi-layered movement, which lacks an easily accessible knowledge base.
