S P A R R O W - Sound and Picture Archives for Research on Women


• A trust set up in 1988 [Register Number E-11958] in Mumbai to build a national archives for women with print, oral history and pictorial material.

• A live archives reaching out to schools, colleges, women's groups and other organisations.

• An active agent of change.

• A forum for discussions.

• An interactive space

• A daring flight into unexplored areas of experience and expression.

SPARROW believes:

• That recording, reviewing, recollecting and reflecting on women's history and life and communicating this information in various ways is an important activity in development.

• That positive change is possible with knowledge and awareness of women's lives, history and struggles for self-respect and human dignity.
