CHALLENGING VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN IN SOUTH ASIA - SPECIAL OFFER

The world watched in horror as the reports came out of New Delhi - a young woman attacked and raped by five men in public on a bus, later dying of her massive internal injuries. In India, the stigma associated with rape can be devastating; nevertheless, tens of thousands have taken to the streets in protest, forcing a hard look at violence against women and marking a turning point in how acts of sexual and physical aggression are normally covered up or ignored. Women throughout South Asia are organizing to make their voices heard.
 
Women Make Movies is offering a special 25% discount on the films in our "Women of South Asia Speak Out" special collection to institutions (K-12, public libraries and community groups can purchase all titles at the low price of $89), including a first time discount on 2012 Academy Award Winner SAVING FACE. These titles can be used to give context to what's happening in India and Pakistan now and stimulate necessary discussion in classrooms and communities. This offer is good through February 8, 2013.
 
Films in the collection include:
 
Academy Award Winner
In Pakistan, many women are known to be victimized by brutal acid attacks. Plastic surgeon Dr. Jawad has returned to his home country to help these women to receive life-changing surgery as they attempt to bring their assailants to justice.
