Pink Saris screening to mark Reclaim the Night

All welcome

"Pink Saris" tells the story of the Gulabi Gang, an Indian women's organisation founded by Sampat Pal Devi, to fight women's abuse and oppression. Drawn predominantly from Dalit women (the "untouchable" lowest caste), they organise direct action to prevent abuse of women. Famous for threatening violent husbands with beatings using laathis (long sticks), they oppose child marriage, official corruption and the lack of educational opportunities for girls.

Join us on the evening of Reclaim the Night, in celebrating women's resistance to violence. We will also be paying tribute to the women of Kurdistan and expressing solidarity with Muslim women confronting the rise of Islamophobia in Australia today.
