5:30p-7:30p: Global Issues Film Festival Film Screening, KIVA

India's Daughter documentary presented by the Global Issues Film Festival will be screened on Tuesday, November 17 at 5:30pm in KIVA.

This documentary is about Jyoti Singh. Jyoti Singh was a young woman from a poor family in Delhi, India, who struggled against the odds in a patriarchal society to become a medical student. A film currently banned in India, India’s Daughter tells the searing story of Jyoti’s brutal gang rape and murder in 2012 while riding a bus home after watching an American movie. Because she was outside her home at night without her family present, she was deemed a whore, and therefore eligible for sexual violence, and because she resisted, she was murdered. Students of Jawaharlal Nehru University launched massive protests the very next day, sparking a national debate about rape culture and the place of girls and women in India's constitutional democracy, with protests spreading to cities throughout the country.
