Details

Please join Amnesty International and the Association for India’s Development at a public screening of the film documentary Pink Saris (http://www.hbo.com/documentaries/pink-saris/index.html), directed by Kim Longinotto, at the San Diego Central Library. This event is free of charge.

Pink Saris (http://athenafilmfestival.com/program/past-films/pink-saris/) chronicles the activities of a northern Indian women’s activist group, called the Gulabi Gang, as it fights on behalf of abused and abandoned girls and women while challenging entrenched attitudes and institutions that conspire to keep many Indian women powerless and vulnerable to violence and other abuses.

A discussion, led by SDSU anthropology and women’s studies professor Huma Gosh, will take place following the film screening. Please contact Sophak Yem at [masked] for more information.
