A bit of Meena

"Meena estimates that in the dozen years she was in the brothel, she was beaten on average 5 days a week. Most girls were quickly broken and cowed, but Meena never quite gave in. Her distinguishing characteristic is obstinacy. She can be dogged and mulish, and that is one reason the villagers find her so unpleasant. She breaches the pattern of femininity in rural India by talking back- and fighting back"


Meena is fighting for her freedom.


What are you fighting for?
