Amma's Daughters

A Memoir

As a young woman, Amma joined forces with a band of revolutionary freedom fighters. Later, in her work with the Mahatma Gandhi-led Civil Disobedience movement, she was connected with a vast network of women whose courage and activism is not adequately understood or rightfully celebrated in connection with India's independence. Drawing on a rich oral history and her mother and grandmother's diaries, as well as their published work, Shrivastava tells the story of the women in her family and their acts of resistance in deeply patriarchal 1920s British India.
