Writing with Fire

Reporting from a social environment built to divide based on caste and gender, a fearless group of journalists maintain Indias only women-led news outlet. The women of Khabar Lahariya (Waves of News), all from the Dalit (untouchables”) caste, prepare to transition the newspaper from print to digital. Armed with smartphones, Chief Reporter Meera and her team of investigative journalists confront some of Indias biggest issues – exposing the relentless discrimination against women and amplifying the voices of those who suffer from the oppressive caste system.

This film is part of the Global Watch: Crisis & Social Action series.
