Description:

December 2012: Tens of thousands of people - women, men,
families, young, old, rich, poor - come out onto the streets of
towns and cities in India to protest the brutal gang rape and
murder of a young medical student in Delhi. For days and months,
the protests refuse to die down. People demand change, action,
commitment to the ideals of democracy and egalitarianism. And
they refuse to be silenced. Soon, a new law is put in place.
More and more people start to report incidents of sexual
assault. New conversations, new debates begin: is violence
increasing? Are we seeing more of it? Was it previously
invisible? What do Indians really think about women? In this
bold and brilliant collection of visual stories, fourteen young
women respond to the activism and debates on the ground; they
negotiate anger, fear, hope, resistance. Created in a week long
workshop, these stories talk to each other as they powerfully
describe the fierce determination of the writers/artists to
continue the battle for change.
