Self-Defence by SOC Films is a must watch for all the women, young and old

Watch and learn

We all know some movies where the hero has to defend themselves or others from danger using self-defence. We sit there looking longingly at the screen and think, “I wish I could do that!” The films make it look seamless. But being able to defend yourself is an important earned skill – one that we would say is necessary for everyone, keeping in view the growing harassment cases. In this digital era, what better way to educate than by means of visual media. Keeping that in mind, SOC Films recently released an animated film Self-Defence from the Siyani Sahelian animation series, as part of the collaborative programme with Idara-e-Taleem-o-Aagahi. Self-Defence revolves around the main character Asghari, her friends and an elderly woman of her community and how they discuss ways on addressing issues of harassment, kidnapping, and sexual violence.
