(Clockwise from left) Niru, 24, and her sisters, Daksha 15, Kailash, 19, Mukta, 22, and Nayna 27 carrying her son Dev 3, and their father Jethabhai Rathod, 60 pose for a family Portrait at home in Surendranagar, Gujarat, India on 14 December 2012. Niru, the 8th child in a family of 11 girls born to Jethabhai, a Dalit construction worker, has been using videography for social change since 2006. She shoots and produces her own short documentaries and is a committed video activist, having conducted hundreds of village video screenings where she also speaks to thousands of men, shattering their ideas about what a woman and a Dalit can do while bringing massive changes to the communities she documents.
