Global Health Film Series

October 14, 2014 -

12:00pm to 2:00pm

All are welcome to view the film PINK SARIS:

Though domestic abuse is illegal in India, tradition and the caste system are often steadfastly upheld, especially in rural areas.  The film follows Sampat Pal Devi, a mother of five and former child bride, who founded the Gulabi (Pink) Gang to protest abusive husbands, child marriages, dowries, and female illiteracy-all while bringing their own brand of female justice to the streets of Uttar Pradesh.
