‘Mard Ke Seene Mein Baal Hota Hai’: Abhiruchi Ranjan
By Abhiruchi Ranjan
I made these posters as part of conducting the GSCASH (JNU) workshop in 2013-14. GSCASH workshops are conducted to sensitize the students regarding gender issues. Popular film dialogues and songs are an important means of capturing people’ s imagination. Using these dialogues and songs to create awareness about gender issues is a way Of speaking to the people, instead of speaking at them. Also conveyed in these images and lyrics are biased attitudes which slowly become normalised and even admirable gender traits.
