Synopsis: 

"Over the course of a ten year revolution in Nepal - nearly 40% of the guerillas who joined the rebel army were women.  Woman Rebel follows the story of one such woman, Uma Bhujel (army codename “Silu”) from the jungles of revolution all the way through to the halls of Parliament. Having been propelled to join by witnessing gender inequality in her childhood, Silu fought on the opposite side of the war against her brother.  However, it is ultimately peaceful protest by Silu and her party that bring about the upheaval of government that they seek."
