Hidden Pockets – WGNRR partner from India!

November 3, 2015

Hidden Pockets is a resource centre and collective of young feminist activists, artists, performers, techies, lawyers, and scholars, created in 2014. They locate sexuality within institutions such as law, medicine, and psychology, and in discourses, for instance about prison systems, disability, and economics, with the aim to make these discussions on sexuality more accessible for everyone.
