L’inde, une révolution par les femmes By Dominique Hoeltgen. Followed by an open discussion with the author
In order to celebrate International Women’s day, Alliance francaise de Bombay presents at Gallery BMB an open discussion with Dominique Hoeltgen about her latest book, L’Inde, la revolution par les femmes (India, a women’s revolution). Journalist and correspondent for the French newspaper ‘L’Expansion’, she chose to meet only with women. Activists, they are doing their best to mobilize the poor small farmers, the Mumbaikars living in the streets, or the bidis rollers. They fight against little girls disappearing or the injustices done to women. Powerful women, they are bankers, managers, or business lawyers. Famous or unknown, their stories describe India.
Join us at Gallery BMB where the on-going exhibition ‘Her Work Is Never Done’ brings together the work of a young breed of women artists who are making art in a global, politically-charged environment
