Give Women Their Share

5.0 ·

Despite significant economic and social progress, India is still host to deep gender inequalities due to the unjustifiable patriarchal social norms and practices that fundamentally value a woman as a lesser mortal than man.

Among the many factors that determine and perpetuate these norms and practices, ownership and management of property is the key one that defines social status, dignity, relations of power and domination. In both rural and urban settings, land and house remains the primary properties that shape the equations of power between men and women irrespective of their caste, class and creed.

Oxfam India is demanding a shift in community attitudes towards women’s land rights. Through our campaign we want to question the silent assumptions both men and women make about property rights in India. We want to inspire push men to give their daughters and wives their property rights, and encourage women to claim the rights due to them under law.

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
