“Je suis India’s daughter” – Indian goverment stop defaming your daughter

This post about sexism and acceptance of the rape of Indian women moved me deeply. We are all sisters on this small planet and if we don’t care for each other then who will?

Roots & Water

India’s home minister has threatened action against the BBC, after it aired a film in the UK featuring an interview with an Indian rapist on death row.

The video that I managed to watch before it was taken down in Youtube shows the story of the victim’s meaningful life , the sorrow of her parents on losing her in this horrific way and the abject poverty and harsh environment that bred her killers. It shows the deep rooted bias against women ,in the psyche  of a portion the Indian society and passive acceptance of this bias in the remaining portion of the Indian society ,that facilitated this crime. It shows the massive response from another portion of the society – mainly women’s group and students – that banded together with unprecedented efficiency and demanded quick justice.

Here’s the link to the documentary..if its still working:

  1. The video has been removed but I am well aware of the prevalence of rape and the attitude of the government. It’s heartbreaking, infuriating and every time I hear of these things whether it be disfigurement with acid, rape, child brides, or whatever my heart sinks and and I am sickened and so sad for these women. Tracey, it’s true we are all sisters, this must stop I know there are those trying and it’s a tough battle.

  2. I am appalled at the violence against women around the world. I am currently reading “I Am Malala” about the young girl who stood up for education and as a result was shot by the Taliban but survived!
