Starting with the village in Rajasthan where female infanticide is a tradition. Few dare to stand up to the men of this village who dictate that baby girls are too expensive and openly admit they don’t want women to be educated for fear of losing their power. The girls that survive childhood will often fall victim to domestic violence, we meet with one such woman back with her parents after escaping her abusive husband. Her family however is keen for her to reconcile with him as her presence brings them shame. The women who dare to stay single and go out at night unaccompanied are at risk of being raped and have very little chance of getting justice as the police often believe that her behaviour means she wanted it to happen. Lastly there are the widows, cast out from their families when their husbands die, with no one to look after them they survive by begging in the streets.
