Amma’s Daughters: A Memoir

Amma’s Daughters: A Memoir

Amma's Daughters is a tribute to ordinary women who were quietly extraordinary and played a major, although largely undocumented, role in the anti-colonial movement in South Asia. Through the story of a nine-year-old girl who joined the anti-colonial movement in India in the 1930s, the narrative foregrounds the experience of ordinary women (and men) in historical movements to demonstrate that history is ultimately the story of our lives. The aim of this creative non-fiction is to inspire the readers to examine the lives of women in their own families/communities; and to shine a light on women who are erased from historical recounting.
