The aim of this essay is to describe what the documentary film India’s daughter tells the viewer about the Indian society through an idea analysis. India’s daughter, released in 2015, directly became a big discussion. Since documentary films are sources of information and might affect opinions it is interesting to analyze one. To be able to examine what is said in the film, the following question will be used: What is said about women and their place in the Indian society, Does the ideas show that change is needed or not? and Is there anything that points to that what is said in the documentary affects people’s opinion?
The theories used in this essay is feminism and conservatism as ideal types to describe in what direction the ideas are heading, and theories about how media affects opinions to see if what is said in the film actually matters.
The result shows that the content of the film and the ideas about women does matter for people’s opinion. It is also clear that there are at least two different ideas about what place women should have in the society, even though the idea that change is needed is the most popular.
