Every photograph, every image carries with it hidden histories. Each of us has innumerable treasure troves of visuals in our family albums, key to recovering important stories for our historical records.
Prajnya Archives is an initiative of the Prajnya Resource Centre on Women in Politics and Policy.
Its goal is to build an archive of visuals that can be used for writing much needed histories of South Asian women who have been visible and active in the public sphere over the last century.
Prajnya Archives is a user-generated project and invites the public, that is you, to delve into your weathered albums of old photos and contribute to our collections.
