This is a comic about Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay, a South Asian feminist and freedom fighter. I wanted to create a comic that brings Kamaladevi’s work to life and gives South Asian kids a badass, desi feminist hero to look up to. I hope that sharing her story will inspire a new generation of desi activists in the U.S.
The comic was featured at a university-wide symposium on social change and activism at the University of Michigan. It is currently available on SocialChange101, a free online educational resource.
