Exhibit Organized by UC Davis Alumna Throws Light on Working Women in Early 20th-Century India

A photo exhibition organized by UC Davis graduate Lisa Trivedi and sponsored by the Middle East/South Asia Studies (ME/SA) Program at UC Davis focuses on the lives of working women in India during the 1930s.

Refocusing the Lens, at the Sacramento City Hall Art Gallery Feb. 7 – March 31, is made up of images by the pioneering photographer Pranlal K. Patel.
