India’s Gender Troubles

PRI's The World is curating conversations online sparked by protests in India that have been ongoing after a 23-year-old university student was gang-raped on a public bus in Delhi in December, and later died. The protest movement has spread from Delhi to London, and even here in Ohio. This experimental feature is called India’s Gender Troubles, and each week The World will focus on a specific topic – including global response to the event, the effect on India’s culture and more.
