In California, actor-filmmaker Nandita Das espouses the importance of strongly believing in issues

Actor, filmmaker, and social justice advocate Nandita Das was in California recently and spoke about feminism and inequality, and was hopeful the new generation would end gender discrimination. She was invited to the 2024 Maitri Gala held March 2 in Palo Alto, CA. Das, the event’s keynote speaker, has written, directed, produced, and acted in the seven-minute short film ‘Listen to Her’. Played at the gala, the short focuses on two forms of abuse women grappled with during the pandemic lockdown — the overburden of work and a surge in domestic violence.
