Changing India, one woman at a time
by Barbara Houghton
About the Book
They say: "If you give a woman a handout, you leave her helpless. But if you teach a woman a skill, she will change her world by becoming self-reliant, empowering her to teach this skill to others and one woman at a time, India will change."
Catalog for exhibition of photographs of women helping women in India from SEWA in Amdabad, widows from Ma Dham a Guild of Service shelter house in Vrindavan, Moslem women celebrating the festival of Holi in Jaipur, and women in Varanasi and Udiapur.
This collection of photographs were made during a sabbatical. Profits from the sale of this book will go to Guild of Service to aid the widows at Ma Dham shelter.
I teach photography, web design for artists and artist book classes at Northern Kentucky University and have been a working artist for over 40 years. I began making blurb books the first day I got a notice that blurb existed. Since then I have made quite a few for myself, gotten friends and family to make books, and use blurb when teaching my courses in artist bookmaking and photography and whenever I teach study abroad classes. Blurb democratized bookmaking for the rest of us and for that I am grateful. Thank you Eileen.
