Mummyji Project

Our Mummyji Project celebrated the work of Asian women writers whose work provided new perspectives on the lives and experiences of the diaspora. It was built around a favourite SADAA collection: the notebooks, manuscripts and publications of the Asian Women Writers Collective (AWWC).

The AWWC which was set up in the 1980s became highly politicized as it grew in numbers. The writers espoused feminist values that challenged both community practices and common stereotypes of Asian women as subjugated and repressed.
