Pink Sari Revolution - Amana Fontanella-Khan
Pink Sari Revolution by Amana Fontanella-Khan delivers a riveting portrait of women grabbing fate with their own hands - and winning back their lives. When Sheelu was arrested for stealing from a powerful politician in the notoriously crooked region of Uttar Pradesh, she was sure that she would be forced to accept a prison sentence, not least because she had alleged that she had been assaulted by a man in the politician’s household. But then Sampat Pal heard word of the charges, and the formidable commander of the pink-sari-wearing, pink-baton-wielding, 20,000-strong ‘Pink Gang’ decided to shake things up. Journalist Amana Fontanella-Khan narrates the story of Sampat Pal and the Pink Gang’s fight for Sheelu, as well as for others facing injustice and oppression.
