Today unlike the past having faced suppression and everyday sexism, women have fought against the systemic oppressive forces. Their fate has led them to sacrifice their life almost seeming that they have lost the battle. But each of their efforts is stepping stones to break open the imprisoning forces. Right from the efforts of Baby Kamble to Laxmi Agarwal and the like-minded people who strive to date.
Baby Kamble though a Dalit woman, decided to place her right foot forward and wrote her story in Jina Amucha (English Translation: The Prisons We Broke). Laxmi Agarwal, an acid attack survivor, didn’t let her dreams shattered after her beauty scarred forever. We have many courageous women who fought bravely but lost their lives in the process. That should only encourage us and give us examples of heroic fearlessness. Bulbbul, directed by Anvita Dutt, is a supernatural horror film that is telling a woman’s story of resistance.
