“Ladies First” is a documentary dedicated to Indian archer Deepika Kumari. Born and raised in the Indian village of Ratu, Kumari was able to travel from her impoverished village to the 2012 Summer Olympics. Kumari would use bamboo bow and arrows to practice, and eventually her commitment and hard work would pay off because she became the best female archer in the world at the age of 18. She is currently ranked No. 5 archer in the world and has received multiple awards. Kumari’s story is not only inspiring but, also a demonstration of the resilience and strength that Indian women occupy. You can watch the documentary on Netflix!
