‘Annihilate Patriarchy’: Artist Paints Women’s Anger Against the Present Government

Women across India on Thursday, April 4, took to streets to “March for Change”, vowing to vote out the present government which, as they say, has neglected the issues of women, evicted thousands of tribals and discriminated against the Dalit communities across the country.

In Delhi, young artist Pariplab Chakraborty used bright water colours to make these portraits capturing the collective anger of women as they marched from Mandi House to the Parliament street holding up banners which read: “auratein utthi nhi to zulm badhta jayega” (If women don’t rise now, atrocities against them will grow stronger).
