| Woman as Property
Filmed mostly in 2012. Initial inspiration was sexual exploitation of women, then there was the rape of a young girl, Oksana Makar, by three men who later tried to cover their crime by burning her alive. She later needed amputation of an arm and both feet; subsequently dying. Two of the men initially, through a corrupt political system, were freed, but later found guilty. At the risk of their own lives they are bringing consciousness of female rights to be free from abuse as property as mostly supported from patriarchal and religious culture. Started and active in Eastern Europe, Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, and now in several other countries. Small numbers of active participants in each country, but determined. Arrested, beaten, abused, placed in inhuman isolation, threatened by police in Belarus, Ukraine and Russia (and all three places with secret Russian police participating). Consistent with what is happening in Ukraine recently.
