“The Gulabi Gang uses lathis, bamboo sticks. They only use the lathis as a last resort—if the men resort to violence. Initially founded to combat domestic violence, the Gulabi Gang works to advance human rights.”
For context: Bride Burning.
Aggression feeds aggression. Violence does not solve violence—but being able to protect themselves, using their bamboo sticks only as a result…and most effectively raising media awareness and changing the very culture that says “this is okay”…that is effective.
A Documentary: “…She caught fire while cooking and died…they don’t want an investigation and are quite satisfied…”
“New movie based on Gulabi Gang coming soon” (not a documentary 😉 )
