Description

They are women of steel, women who have seen terror in its most violent forms. Bombs, bullets or even lowly machetes have shattered their lives. Homemakers without the Men: Assam’s Widows of Violence is a real-life narrative of widows of violence in northeastern India’s Assam state who have lost their bread-winning partners to insurgency or ethnic strife.

Wasbir Hussain brings out the pathos, trauma, struggle and challenges of these remarkable women who continue to live life and bring up their children, surmounting heavy odds.
