“The beautiful thing about the art is that it reflects our thoughts, it changes our minds, it demonstrates our foolishness, it brings tears into our eyes but it leaves us with profound opportunity to reflect. 

UN Women is very proud to be associated with Son Rise and United Nations is proud to be a part of this journey.”

Nishtha Satyam

Deputy Country Representative, India, Bhutan, Maldives and Sri Lanka of UN Women

“Nothing gets to the heart the way cinema does. SON RISE is ‘Magic’ since it brings out not only voices of discrimination but of courage, of sheer strength.

I am so confident that Son Rise will lay the emergency exit for gender issues that our country faces. We, at UN Women are privileged and honored to partner with Vibha Bakshi on her film SON RISE.”
