Continuing in the spirit of Women’s Day, actors, Freida Pinto and Meryl Streep will join BAFTA award winning director, Leslee Udwin at the launch of ‘India’s Daughter’, which is a movement that is at its core a documentary film directed by Leslee. She captured the heinousness of the Delhi gang rape case of Jyoti Singh, who is popularly known as Nirbhaya. The controversial documentary film features an interview of one of the rapists. The film will be premiered at the launch event, hosted on the 20th anniversary of the UN Fourth World Conference for Women in association with Vital Voices Global Partnership and the NGO Plan International on March 9th in New York.
Freida joins the movement not just as a crusader for a cause that is dedicated to women, but also as an associate producer of the film. She is someone who has always been at the forefront of female focused issues right from her work with the NGO Plan International across the globe to her role as co producer and ambassador of the Girl Rising movement. Freida has taken on this project to team up with strong platforms like Vital Voices to ensure the widespread impact of its messaging.
