''Social, emotional learning to me isn't some annex to education, it should be seen right from the beginning as a one of the central purposes of education. […] Think Equal is a vital part of now." Sir Ken Robinson
India's Daughter is an award winning documentary film directed by Leslee Udwin and is part of the BBC's Storyville series. Filmmaker Leslee Udwin examines the society and values of India after a 23-year-old medical student is raped and murdered on a bus.
Leslee Udwin has started a world-wide initiative THINK EQUAL to address how early child education tackles human behaviour in adult life. THINK EQUAL calls for a system change in education to end the discriminatory mind set and cycle of violence across our world.
Leslee Udwin was voted by the NY Times the No 2 Most Impactful Woman of 2015, and has been awarded the prestigious Swedish Anna Lindh Human Rights Prize (previously won by Madeleine Albright). She has also been named Safe's Global Hero of 2015, Global Thinker by Foreign Policy. A BAFTA and multi-award winning filmmaker and Human Rights Campaigner, Leslee's documentary "India's Daughter", has been critically acclaimed around the globe, won 32 awards (including the Peabody Award and the Amnesty International Media Award for Best Documentary 2016) and sparked a global movement to end violence against women and girls. The searing insights yielded by the 2½ journey making "India's Daughter", led Leslee to found UK-and-US-based Not for Profit global education initiative THINK EQUAL.
