This presentation describes the unique role that Mithila Art has played in the making of a film about changing women’s lives in Mithila. Davis explores how Mithila Art has helped illuminate various aspects of the relationship between gendered Maithil narratives and social roles in conjunction with a participatory action research project, begun in late 2016, in and around the town of Madhubani in Bihar, India.
