They learn karate to fight sexual aggressors in the shantytowns of Nairobi; participate in extreme survival camps in the Norwegian wilderness; patrol the streets of Delhi, and get concealed carry permits to protect themselves in the United States. But what do all these women have in common? They have chosen to use force to defend their rights. The right to exercise their chosen profession. The right to use their bodies as they see fit. The right to live. Fight Back is a documentary series about groups of women who literally fight for their rights. A radical choice which overcomes a universal taboo – the use of force by women – and offers a one-of-a-kind perspective on an issue that is more topical than ever: how do we strike back against gender-based violence and injustice? By taking us into their everyday lives, and showing their diverse backgrounds and communities, this series puts these groups of women in their rightful place: at the forefront of an open and universal debate.
