Bangladesh: ‘Quilting for Justice’ Graphic Novel on Rohingya Women Now Available in Bangla, Burmese

On this International Women’s Day, Asia Justice and Rights and Liberation War Museum Bangladesh proudly announce our latest translation of ‘Quilting for Justice’ graphic novel. Based on the stories of Rohingya women in Kutupalong refugee camp, Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, this publication is now available in Bangla, other than the previously released version in English and Burmese.

This powerful graphic novel explains the different international mechanisms advancing justice for the Rohingya, by following a fictional character as Rohingya woman shares her story and information about the mechanisms with others in her community. When crafting this story, AJAR and LWM relied on their experiences working with female Rohingya refugees in Cox’s Bazar. Through this book, their voices are amplified, and their stories are shared with the world.

On this International Women’s Day, let us remember the ongoing struggle for gender equality and the importance of supporting and empowering women in all communities. Join us in celebrating the launch of this remarkable graphic novel and in standing in solidarity with the Rohingya women whose stories it shares.
