‘The Indian Women’s Project - archiving marginalised histories’ is student's attempt as a feminist designer to locate herself and her practice within the landscape of narrative design in the digital sphere. The project is an outcome of the Ford Fellowship Grant awarded to projects done in NID for social causes in the form of a website experience that popularises and amplifies the work done by ‘The Indian Women’s Project’, an NGO that Ms Divya Rosaline David started.
With the help of its volunteers and interns, the NGO gathers and archives oral histories of marginalised women in India. This project follows principles of Intersectional Feminism and Ambedkarite philosophy in its vision, mission and processes. It is a humble initiative to bring marginalised narratives into what we perceive to be dominant history.
