Pink Vigilantes strike back at abusive men in India

A group of women in Banda district of Uttar Pradesh, calling themselves the Gulabi Gang, is known for both their pink saris and their mission: to protect other women from abuse.

They take no prisoners, but collectively they chase after -- and strike -- abusive men.

Photographer Sanjit Das has produced a film about the pink vigilantes. Das and Laura Plotkin, director of the film, spoke about the film in an interview with New America Now host Sandip Roy.
