Overcoming Gender Inequalities Sharon Panackal, Asian University for Women

This documentary attempts to show how women are persistently considered as the boundary markers in many Asian communities. Despite the attempts of many governmental and non-governmental organizations to improve women’s situations in these countries, the notion of women as the flag bearers of their traditions largely hinders them from becoming the individual they want to be. Through the documentary, it could be seen how this very notion of women as boundary markers is deeply entrenched in many Asian societies, and how this problem could be addressed in order to make this place better for everyone.
