Meera films the testimony of a rape victim with her iPhone before confronting the police for their inaction. For Meera, thorough journalism is the key to justice. That's why she founded the only newspaper in the whole of India published entirely by Dalit women, the so-called "untouchables" – the very lowest caste. Every day, they report on the most explosive issues and fight for social change, even if it means risking their own safety. WRITING WITH FIRE follows at close quarters a determined group of women who question the social system and boldly break with tradition.
