In the run up to International Women’s Week, Viva La Vulva student society invites you to a screening of one of the most powerful documentaries of the past decade, 'India’s Daughter’ followed by a discussion with its director and producer Leslee Udwin, and audience Q&A. The film, made in response to the 2012 rape and murder of Jyoti Singh, examined the details of the case, and used in depth interviews with the victims family as well as perpetrators, to explore the attitudes towards women that, although not universal, were widespread in India at the time. The attack and subsequent documentary resulted in international outcry and a women's equality movement in India larger than had ever existed before.

But what has been the impact? Have attitudes changed in India in response to the documentary? Was there any impact here in the U.K.? It is questions like these that this event seeks to discuss. So join us in what will prove to be a truly fascinating evening.
