I found this link to some photos taken by the BBC of Tamil women training with the LTTE (Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam/the same group that the woman that Malli is based on fought with) in the conflict with the Sri Lankan government.  I think it’s notable that a lot of the captions point out that the reason the women fight is to protect their people, and also that their male relatives have been killed or are ill.
