Indomitable Tigresses of 1971

I
Heroes are not limited to men and women with large guns, capes, or masks. They can be everyday people who are simply not afraid to rise up when the call goes out. Time and again, women have turned a blind eye to prevailing norms and have actively risen up to answer the call to action. Unfortunately though, due to the patriarchal nature of the narrative, their tales have often been lost in the annals of history.

We believe it is of utmost importance that we do not let these stories remain in oblivion. This Victory Day, it is, therefore, our great honor to be able to bring to the foreground the tales of a few such women. These are women who bravely threw caution to the wind and fought actively on the frontlines for our freedom. We salute you and the many others whose tales we weren’t able to uncover. You are not forgotten.
