The recently released BBC documentary India’s Daughter, by Leslee Udwin, captures the story of the brutal rape and murder of a young medical student on a bus in Delhi in December 2012. Banned by the Indian Government, the film has raised questions about the attitude towards violence against women in India.
A panel discussion will follow the screening, examining the documentary and its ban by the Indian Government through the lens of the law, the media, and gender.
Jointly organized by SAI and the India Caucus at HKS, and co-sponsored by the South Asia Caucus, the Human Rights PIC, the Gender Consortium and the Criminal Justice PIC.
