“India’s Daughter” is the powerful story of the 2012 brutal gang rape on a Delhi bus of a 23-year-old medical student who later died from her injuries. The assault made international headlines and ignited protests by women in India and around the world, inspiring filmmaker Leslee Udwin to create a cinematic, impassioned plea for change. The film pays tribute to a remarkable young woman and explores the stories behind the incident, the ramifications throughout India, and lays bare the way in which societies’ patriarchal values have spawned such acts of violence globally.
A post-film discussion will be led by Advocates' staff.
