"For instance, where Sinhala and Tamil law recognized a woman’s independent legal status and the right to own property, colonial legislation on matrimonial property rights introduced the idea of a wife’s inferior status in relation to her husband, the inferior legal position of the widow, and the unity of personality of husband and wife."

  3. Unfortunately no subtitles on this trailer but for Hindi/Urdu speakers this is worth a watch. The film is based on the real life Gulabi Gang, an activist group made up of women as a response to .domestic abuse and violence against women. Our description doesn’t do them much justice so read up on the Gulabi Gang if you’re interested in learning more!

    Today, Dr. Singh says thank you. And he invites us to dream with him of a world where Sikhs aren’t called “Osama,” but are seen as American heroes.
