Bol is a short film made by a young 28-year-old Mumbai based filmmaker Pooja Batura Pathak. Bol inspires women to break their silence and speak up against the atrocities done to them.
This film urges to stop the cycle of sexual violence and harassment. The 12-minute video captures various types of sexual abuse an average Indian woman goes through on a daily basis at hands of men and women. From child abuse to workplace harassment and marital rape, every aspect has been covered aptly.
Statistics say that in India a woman is sexually assaulted every three minutes and raped every 20 minutes! The figures might be shocking but women tend to hesitate to speak up fearing retribution and judgemental glares from this insensitive society.
The video says, “The more you say the less it will happen”. So true. Watch the short film Bol below!
