"Overcoming Domestic Violence" presents four reports about individuals and organizations in working in South Asia to protect women who have been abused and to educate the whole community about prevention.
1)Sosanâ€™s story: Eight years after the fall of the Taliban, targeted violence against women in Afghanistan is back at an alarming level. Women of all ages are enduring brutal physical and sexual abuse in their own homes. A few lucky ones find their way to one of only six shelters in the country.
2)Breakthrough studies show that more than 35 percent of Indian women have experienced physical violence at the hands of their boyfriends, husbands, or in-laws. The campaign of the breakthrough organization, Bell Bajau (Ring The Bell) inspires abused women and their friends, neighbors, and colleagues to break through the taboo and do something.
3)Gulabi Gang Sampat Pal is a campaigner with a mission: to ensure that those born into the lowest caste have an education, avoid child marriages, and earn a decent wage. But, while Mahatma Gandhi famously preached non-violence, Sampat Pal and her thousands of followers in pink saris believe that patriarchy, abuse of women, and corruption demand a new style of justice.
4)Amra Shakti: We Are All Powerful: The Bangladesh Rural Advancement Committee educates women about their rights and empowers them to take control of their destinies. See what happens when a group of women come together to seek equality.
