International Women's Day is a worldwide event with a human rights theme, highlighting the social, economic, cultural and political achievements and contributions made by women. It is held annually on the 8th of March. The day also sees demonstrations and protests aiming to further gender equality. To celebrate this year's Women's Day, a short film titled 'Meera', on women's safety will be released on March 8.
Maxwell Entertainment is presenting the Roopesh Rai production, which is about rape and revenge. The 30-minute short is directed by Sunil Pathare and produced by Kapil Pathare.
The cast of Meera features Meera Iyer, Kimaya Bhattacharya and Mohan Suryavanshi in key characters.
Sunil said in a statement: "'Meera' is a story of a brave woman of our society. The idea of the film is centered around the fundamental truth that women's safety is not about women alone, which is why we pledged to create a short film that communicates clearly the need to change the mindset of men, regardless of age and status."
Kapil said: "Until the vision of men doesn't change, nothing will change. Women should not be treated as an object to men... One should always respect women. When a woman says 'no', it means no."
