‘SheWrite’ weaves together the narratives and work of four Tamil women poets. Salma negotiates subversive expression within the tightly circumscribed space allotted to a woman in a small town. For Kuttirevathi, solitude is a crucial creative space from where her work resonates. Her anthology entitled ‘Breasts’ (2003) became a controversial work that elicited hate mail, obscene calls and threats. Malathy Maitri_s poems attempt to explore and express feminine power and spaces. Sukirtharani writes of desire and longing, celebrating the body in a way that affirms feminine empowerment. The film traverses these diverse modes of resistance, through images and sounds that evoke the universal experiences of pain, anger, desire and transcendence.
