The Awadhi Family

A film about efforts to end discrimination against girls, as one family experiences them.

Before screening, you might want to ask the audience if it’s easier for a girl or a boy to complete secondary school – and why.

How can social norms be changed, to improve girls’ options in the future? This 7-minute film provides a useful introduction to discussions about:

  • the social and gender norms that we learn as we grow up
  • how we might transform the harmful norms that limit opportunities for girls

Pooja Awadhi faces other challenges too. Do you agree with the narrator that she will be a strong woman when she grows up?
