Pink Saris...abused women fight back in India
Michelle Verwey of Indore, India heard Rick's interview with filmmaker Kim Longinotto about her film Pink Saris -- referring to the uniform in India of abused women banding together to fight back.
Thank you for the September 23rd show, which I listened to as a podcast just this morning. I particularly enjoyed hearing about the documentary film Pink Sarees. I am a Victoria, B.C. native teaching nursing in Central India. Many of my post-basic BSc students are from states in India where life as a woman is very challenging, such as Orissa, Madhyas Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, and Chhattishgarh. I am interested in finding a copy of Pink Sarees to see if it would be useful for part of my community health class on social action and women's rights. Is the film available on DVD?
