Changes in law on rape and sexual assault: Special TNIE coverage

Standard

The New Indian Express has devoted three pages of its magazine section to the proposed changes in the Indian criminal code sections that pertain to rape and sexual assault.

We are proud to say they have also been Prajnya’s partners in the 2008 and 2009 16 Days Campaigns against Gender Violence.

Check out the stories in the section:

Overhauling definition of rape, May 30, 2010.
Geeta Ramaseshan, What does draft bill lack? May 30, 2010.
New law will give voice to voiceless, May 30, 2010.

Unfortunately, these are the only links in the main paper and links on the TNIE site are not stable. We will try and find a way to make the articles available on this blog or our site.

  1. Thanks for posting about this! I really liked (and agree with) what Aniruddh Vasudevan had to say about the queer perspective on laws that deal with rape and assault.

    Perhaps you could scan the articles and upload them as jpegs/pdfs?
