Presented by Jane Garvey. Kim Longinotto has been making documentary films for more than thirty years and her latest tells the story of Sampat Pal, the leader of a movement which champions the rights of abused women in India.

She joins Jane to talk of how her life has changed since she defected from the Soviet Union in 1983. And, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of women murdered by violent partners.
