NPR: “Feminist Films Push Boundaries In India”

“Patriarchy is alive and kicking,” says director [Alankrita] Shrivastava, curled up on a couch in her office in Mumbai.

Shrivastava, 37, says the censor board’s refusal to release the film in India means it has “no idea about the fact that women and men have equal rights in this country. It makes me feel like they don’t want women to tell their stories, they want women to keep quiet and shut up.”
