Hundreds of women’s police stations have been set up across India to combat domestic abuse and sexual violence, following the Delhi rape case in December 2012.

Parmila Dalal is second-in-command at the women’s police station in Sonipat, in the northern state of Haryana. Every day she has to deal with the cases the public bring to her.

She encounters family members at war over such contentious matters as caste, dowry payment and relations with abusive in-laws.

India’s Ladycops reveals how women’s lives are changing in India today, and how they often struggle to reconcile the conflicting demands made upon them.
