Anaxagoras - 2010-11-29 What an awesome woman. Non-violence as a form of resistance is often futile; this woman knows where it's at.
Coax_Current - 2010-11-30 I hate seeing the same tired canards about non-violent struggle by people that know nothing about it.
The "violence" here isn't important. What's important is the very salient threat of humiliation for the corrupt and unjust people, with that humiliation magnified by a growing audience. She's empowering women by giving them the other end of the stick, building their courage to speak out and fix injustices, and improve their communities.
Anaxagoras - 2010-11-30 That makes two of us! I also hate when ignorant people talk about non-violent resistance.
You assert that the "violence" isn't important, but both the documentary and the woman herself assert otherwise. What's more, they even give concrete examples of when violence has proven effective.
C'mon sport. Try a bit harder. At the very least, address what the documentary has already presented.
Shanghai Tippytap - 2010-11-29 These women also do some great HIV/AIDS awareness stuff in some pretty awful slums.
Rodents of Unusual Size - 2010-11-30 This woman is also really smart. She wins people over through sheer power of persuasion. That's admirable for anyone, but especially from Utter Pradesh. I really wish her school well.
spikestoyiu - 2010-11-30 Why isn't she cursing? Now that's civil disobedience!!!
