Présentation de l'éditeur

The brutal rape of a young woman on a bus in Delhi in 2012 lit a spark of outrage across the world. Young women marched in protest, urging recognition of the rights of women and greater gender equality. This book emerges in response to the young woman's subsequent death and the protests which followed. The contributors have come together to present a detailed analysis of the position of women in South Asia, the issue of violence and the long struggle for gender equality. They analyze violence in a number of countries and examine the courage and bravery of the many women who are fighting for justice.
