We had hoped that more interested people would have attended the session, but obviously there is much more work to do in making the Hindu community not only aware of the problems that exist within its society, but also encouraging them to come forward, get involved and get vocal about these kinds of issues.

The film tells the stories of abandoned and trafficked girls, of women who suffer extreme dowry-related violence, of brave mothers fighting to save their daughters’ lives, and of other mothers who would kill for a son. Global experts and grassroots activists put the stories in context and advocate different paths towards change, while collectively lamenting the lack of any truly effective action against this injustice.
