Women: Written, Unwritten 3.0

FemPositive and Vacha Resource Centre for Women and Girls are delighted to host our third book reading and discussion on February 25, 2017, where we will be reading some of Ismat Chugtai's translated short stories in English. 
Date - February 25, 2017 
Time - 3.00pm to 6.00pm 
Venue- Vacha Resource Centre for Women and Girls, Ground Floor, Tank Lane Municipal School, Tank Lane, Santacruz , West.

Please RSVP: fempositive@gmail.com

Ismat Chughtai (1911 - 1991) was Urdu's most courageous and controversial woman writer in the twentieth century. 
At a time when writing by and about women was rare, Ismat Chugtai explored female sexuality with unparalleled frankness and examined the political and social mores of her time. She wrote about the world that she knew, briinging the idiom of the middle class to Urdu prose, and totally transformed the complexion of Urdu fiction.

She once said: "In my stories I've put down everything with objectivity. Now if some people find them obscene, let them go to hell. It's my belief that experiences can never be obscene if they are based on authentic realities of life. These people think that there's nothing wrong if they can do things behind the curtains...They are all halfwits." Her contribution to literature and the challenges she posed to the Indian patriarchal society through her writings is noteworthy and we are thoroughly excited to read some of Chugtai's short stories in our session and explore her life, times and work.

You're exaggerating. You're lying. It's really not that bad. You're making men out to be monsters. But here's what it really comes down to: it happens. Men attack women. If they didn't, Law &a Order: SVU wouldn't have been on for a billion years with fresh material every week. And that fear is real, every single time I go out and know I will be returning home late. I hate feeling nervous. I hate feeling like I have to leave parties earlier than I want to. I hate looking behind me constantly and only breathing again when I close the door behind me. I don't think it is ALL MEN who attack women. It's just that I can't tell which ones are the ones who will." #feministbooks 1454834905716221713_35918437

View diannataliasutanto's Instagram "We are filled with a longing for the wild. There are few culturally sanctional antidotes for this yearning. We were taught to feel shame for such a desire. We grew our hair long and used it to hide our feelings. But the shadow of Wild Woman still lurks behind us during our days and in our nights."
🌻🌻
"The ancients called the desert the place of divine revelation. But for women, there is much more to it than that. 
A desert is a place where life is very condensed. The roots of living things hold on to that last tear of water and the flower hoards its moisture by only appearing in early morning and late afternoon. Life in the desert is small but brilliant and most of what occurs goes on underground. This is like the lives of many women. 
The desert is not lush like a forest or a jungle. It is very intense and mysterious in its life forms. Many of us have lived desert lives: very small on the surface, and enormous under the ground." 🌻🌻🌻
My all time favorite 💕 It's a very interesting book about woman psychology. Here, the author combine folk-tale and fairy-tale forensics (paleomythology), and archetypal analysis to elucidate women psyche. In this book she introduces a new archetype named 'Wild Woman.' The term 'wild' here is not used in pejorative sense, meaning out of control, but the term is used by the author to refer to the condition of living a natural life. She claims that there is a wild, powerful force filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and vitality in every woman. But patriarchy has supressed or 'civilized' this wild woman into feminine rigid role. Consequently, women become over-domesticated, dependent, fearful, uncreative and trapped. To advocate women freedom from this deadening condition, she argues that it is important to retrieve and reclaim this archetype into women lives. By analysing many multicultural myths, folk tales, fairy tales and stories, the author elucidates the characteristics of this wild women archetype to the readers. A very inspiring feminist work, I think!💕

View writingonbookmargins's Instagram Honestly, I haven't actually read this because shortly after starting it I decided that I was going to save myself the waste of time that would've been reading this book of "poetry." "Poetry" can either be two things: Pretentious and unintelligible words strung together in verses, or the product of the misconception that normal prose presented in verses is lyrical. This is the latter. (Mind you, I am a great fan of William Carlos Williams; poetry doesn't have to be fancy in order to be poetic.) Anyhow, this wasn't to my taste. HOWEVER, I do think there is merit in Kaur's work. She has created a widely read piece of literature that is feminist, critical, and inclusive. For that, I'm thankful. For having reached a number of people and stirred in them these values, when, let's face it, most of poetry is written by white men based on highly patriarchal values, such as romantic love and the woman as an object. 1452612993355136094_4470378705
