Indian Women : Living in Hell

On December 16th, a 23-year-old female student was brutally raped by six men on board a bus. She was assaulted with an iron bar and thrown naked onto the roadside. She died two weeks later. In a society where many still regard women as a commodity, our reporter met both victims of sexual violence and people who support gender inequality.

Most of this report was shot in and around the Indian capital, New Delhi, where the gang rape of a 23-year-old student shocked the nation. The brutal rape and subsequent death of the victim has triggered a debate in Indian society about the rampant violence against women.

During the course of filming this report, we met rape survivors whose horrific stories are heart-wrenching. We followed an Indian feminist during a rally for equality who believes the time for change is now. We also interviewed India’s Taliban, members of conservative village councils, and young Indian girls in both small villages and big cities.
