We are poor but so many the story of self-employed women in India by Ela R Bhatt ( )
13 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 825 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"We Are Poor but So Many is a firsthand account of the forming of a women's trade union, the Self-Employed Women's Association (SEWA), in India. The vision and the journey of this unique organization are recounted by its founder, Ela R. Bhatt, who leads us into the lives of poor, self-employed women and their world of work. The book explores basic concepts of labor - what constitutes work and who is a worker - by shining a spotlight on the informal sector and its pivotal role in the economy. It is also a celebration of women workers whose invisible hands support not only families but also a nation's economy."--BOOK JACKET

1 edition published in 1999 in Gujarati and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A portrait of SEWA, the now-famous women's organization in India that holds to the simple yet radical belief that poor women need organizing, not welfare. SEWA, or the Self-Employed Women's Association, corresponds to the Indian word sewa, meaning service. Based in the western Indian city of Ahmedabad, a dusty old textile town on the edge of the Gujarati desert, SEWA is at its core a trade union for the self-employed. It offers union membership to the illiterate women who sell vegetables for 50 cents a day in the city markets, or who pick up paper scraps for recycling from the streets--jobs that most Indian men don't consider real work. Inspired by the political, economic and moral model advocated by Mahatma Gandhi, SEWA has grown since its founding to a membership of more than 217,000 and its bank now has 61,000 members, assets of $4 million and customers who walk in each day to deposit a dollar or take out 60 cents. Following the lives of six women involved in the organization, including Ela R. Bhatt, its visionary founder, Plattner's documentary is an important look at the power of grassroots global feminism"--Women Make Movies website
