In Her Words: The Journey of Indian Women by Annie Zaidi

The Film traces the historic and social journeys of Indian women's lives as revealed through the literature they created in every era. Through the verses of nuns, bhakti devotee rebels, folk songs, verses written by courtesans, amateur anthropologists, the memoirs of activists and modern literature, we witness the oppressions and aspirations of Indian womanhood over two millenia.
