The United Nations General Assembly has designated November 25 the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.
The premise of the day is to raise awareness that women around the world are victims of rape, domestic violence and other forms of violence; furthermore, one of the goals of the day is to emphasize that the extent and true nature of the problem is often hidden.
For decades, Hindi cinema has been a mirror reflecting the times and scenarios the nation has gone through. A bewildering number of mainstream Bollywood films from the 60s to the 90s featured graphic depictions of rape with lustful villains and powerless heroines. Now, from playing decorative objects in movies, if not victims or martyrs, to becoming a powerful force, women have come a long way in our films.
Things have changed with films such as ‘Pink’, ‘Thappad’ and the # MeToo-set post ‘Guilty’ which deal with consent, domestic violence and societal treatment of victims of rape, sexual violence against women
The Hindi film actress has gone from being “abala naari” to being a woman of substance and strength who defends her rights, raises her voice against injustice, fights for her dignity and self-respect and rebels also when it has to.

‘Mardaani’ released in 2014 stars Rani Mukerji, with Jisshu Sengupta, Tahir Raj Bhasin and Saanand Verma in supporting roles.
