Unintended consequences: India’s rape crisis
India’s burgeoning economy has a dark side: Cities across the country are struggling with rising cases of rape and sexual harassment.
While growing numbers of women have joined the workforce, many are also being attacked by men used to a traditional patriarchal environment, breeding resentment and violence.
In New Delhi, commonly described as the “rape capital” of the country, women and men alike are fighting back in creative ways. A new emergency task force, a special women’s taxi service and even an anti-rape smartphone app have been created to tackle the rape crisis.
101 East travels to India to meet Indians from all walks of life working together to end violence against women.
