Crowdfunding: Drawing the Line: A Comics Anthology by Indian Women
by Nicole Marie Burton
“Drawing the Line: Indian Women Fight Back! is a collection of 14 accounts of lived experience by women in India. Stories cover topics about gender, sexuality, harassment, coming of age, family, sisterhood, race, shadeism, class, and political struggle in a country that many in the West know little about, and understand even less.
Ad Astra Comix, in partnership with Zubaan Books, are set to release the North American edition of this anthology. Our intention is to share this important project with folks in the US and Canada, and to specifically focus on working with organizations who feel this book offers their membership an opportunity for education and advocacy around women’s issues.
