Dakota Fanning, Freida Pinto, & Meryl Streep Support 'India's Daughter' Doc at New York Screening!

Dakota Fanning, Freida Pinto, and Meryl Streep strike a pose as they arrive at the screening for India’s Daughter held at the Baruch College on Monday (March 9) in New York City.

The three ladies got together to light about a dozen candles honoring the documentary, which is about a medical student who died in India after being gang-raped on a bus in 2012.

“Tonight we light these candles to honor the value and the work of Jyoti Singh‘s short, promising life,” Meryl said at the event (via ChicagoTribune). “She was India’s daughter. Tonight she’s our daughter too.”

“Ultimately, this is a film that needs to go out. This is not a shame-India documentary,” Freida continued. “This is not just an India problem; this is a problem that inflicts almost every country in the world. There’s not a single country in 2015 that is free of sexual violence against women.”

Also pictured: Dakota spotted chatting on her cellphone while out and about in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City.

    No one in India is against broadcast of this documentary including government. Controversy is not against documentary but it is against BBC. Compared to any western nation India have lower sexual assault incident per 10000 people (1.8 including not reported to police according to UN). UK establishment itself is in denial mode for crime against child rapes, India actually have collective conscious to solve this violence against women. But off course, those who have sabotaged feminist movement (celebrities) don’t like real positive change that is why media defaming campaign calling this a “BANNED documentary.”
    Government did not banned this doc but government actually gave special permission to BBC to interview the convict in Jail on PRECONDITION that it will not be aired when case is in court, this is LAW of the land and BBC made deception that hey will comply but they release it early to cash-in womens day. Even Victims mother is horrified when she came to know that they are showing convicts faces and BBC paid rapist RS.40000 for interview.

    This particular documentary is not for making good change but it is to demoralize real feminist who will be scared of defaming their motherland.
    BBC is state sponsored agency of UK. Just google child rape cover up scandals (multiple scandals in including high ranking BBC staff to Lords). Just Yesterday UK police arrested people who wanted to make demonstration against it, UK gov intercepted their social media and arrested them midway.
    This passive racism is not first time, misinformation campaign was also run in past for slum-dog millionaire when everybody (including those who helped make the film) was against title of film and not the movie itself. People of Slum offended by name calling them DOG, they are not dogs they are human, lawyer, police, businessman, teachers even judges come from these slums. It is better than being homeless.
