Empowering the Rights of Women in India: Sajitha Shankhar’s Art

Investigation by Gail Levin
Summary

Calling out violence against women is a major theme in the art of Sajitha Shankhar. Her choice to speak out for women reflects both her observations of Indian society and her own life experience. Having encountered abuse, she found inner strength and liberation by following teachers who counseled wisdom and encouraged meditation and the value of artistic practice.
