More Information on Pink Sari Revolution
In the ‘Badlands’ of Uttar Pradesh, violence and oppression against women are commonplace, but one woman has raised an army to say “no more”. She is Sampat Pal Devi, the formidable leader of the Gulabi Gang, a movement of over 400,000 women fighting for their rights in a uniform of blazing pink saris.
Fusing drama, music and movement, Pink Sari Revolution is an explosive new drama which reveals the real cost of making a stand. This true story is based on the book by internationally renowned journalist Amana Fontanella-Khan and created by an award winning team of Indian and British Asian artists.
