Women for Justice

Director: Daniel Burkholz and Sybille Fezer.

Forced marriages, domestic violence, over 100000 wives killed by fire in so called household accidents every year – in India, violence against women is omnipresent and nearly all women, independent of class, caste and religion are affected. Because Police and Justice hardly give any protection or aid, women in India have organised to fight against this violence and injustice. They founded the Women for Justice and the Nari Adalat womens courts. Every week they gather on the roof terrace of the local government or on a dusty place under a tree and dispense justice themselves. With quick-wittedness and creativity they put beating husbands and quarrelsome mother-in-laws in their place. And – if necessary – they go in as a riot squad to help a poor widow, who was thrown out of the house with her little daughter after the death of her husband, to regain her belongings.
