The Good Shepherd International Foundation (GSSI Foundation) releases their latest documentary, ‘’Mahila: a Women’s Movement Rising,’’ today, on the occasion of International Women’s Day.
This film celebrates the power of women helping each other and to support a movement of women walking together to enforce their rights.
The film tells three stories of empowerment in India’s rural Dalit Communities. For ages, Dalit women have suffered from triple oppression- discrimination based on gender, caste and impoverished economic status.
Through education, access to credit, training in business formation and awareness of their rights as citizens, the women in the film ‘’Mahila’’ have found a rare voice and an important standing in their communities and in the wider India.
