Shaheen Bagh: A Graphic Recollection is a graphic account of the most famous political sit-in of recent times, which started on one side of a public thoroughfare in Delhi in December 2019 and continued till March 2020 when it was cleared by the police after the government declared a nationwide lockdown to contain the spread of COVID-19.

 
The book tells the story of the Muslim women who started the protest that became the catalyst for a pan-India political movement against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) and the proposed National Register of Citizens (NRC). Based on conversations and interviews with the women who were part of the protest, Ita Mehrotra's graphic narrative archives moments from a movement that spread like wildfire through the length and breadth of the country and continues to inspire voices of dissent. 
 
Through the portrayal of women’s stories in image and word, we re-enter some of the many poignant dialogues, debates and questions that were raised about citizenship, democracy and minority rights, over the course of the movement. Shaheen Bagh: A Graphic Recollection brings alive the protest that lasted 101 days and forever changed the way women's role in movements would be seen and understood.

Reviews 

The book captures real-world moments like this one, when a woman held up a placard pointing out that most people couldn’t find their winter caps from the year before, let alone identity papers from half a century ago. - Hindustan Times
