It’s been nearly a year since India’s idea about women changed.
In every feminist revolution there has been a precipitating event, a single instance that changed the way we thought about things. That made us all sit up and change.
And that event in India was the Nirbhaya rape and subsequent death.
Women and Men fought for changes, they tried to change a system of judiciary that was incredibly biased against rape victims. They tried to change the way the police thought about rape and sexual harassment and these are still ongoing struggles with some knee jerk tragedies such as the expansion of the death penalty in India.
However the fact that change is coming. You can smell it on the wind. The dialogue has changed from “It’s your fault” to “It’s not” and from “Don’t Go Out” to “Take precautions”.
