Since 2018, Nepal Picture Library has been collecting photographs and other archival materials with the objective of creating an open visual repository of feminist experiences in Nepal. The Public Life of Women, originally curated as an exhibition, showcases selections from this archive. Put together from contributions made by over 150 individuals and organisations, this photobook flashes instances from the past to present publicness itself as a key feminist strategy in Nepal. 

A first-of-its-kind publication, The Public Life of Women is also a testimony to the archival and artifactual orientation of feminism at large. Containing more than 500 images, accompanying exhibition texts in English and Nepali, as well as a conversation between curators Diwas Raja Kc and NayanTara Gurung Kakshapati, this volume engages fundamental questions of public memory and feminist histories.
