Summary
A portrait of the women's organization in India, called SEWA, that holds to the simple yet radical belief that poor women need organizing, not welfare. Inspired by the political, economic and moral model advocated by Gandhi, SEWA has grown since it founding to a membership of 217,000 and its bank now has assets of over $4 million. SEWA is at its core a trade union for the self-employed that offers union membership to the illiterate women who sell vegetables, pick up scraps for recycling from the streets and engage in small cottage industries
