Indian Women Teach Us All Feminism

In the wake of the horrific gang rape (*tw) that resulted in a young woman’s death last week in India, major protests have been going on, in the face of police violence, in spite of a justice system stacked against the women… In protest after protest women are standing up to the violence against them. I have no words to describe how I feel reading about this and seeing the images, I am in awe of them, and I don’t understand why we all aren’t out in the street right now. Really lacking the words, so here are some pictures.

  1. Hi, I’m a graduate student working on images of protest following the gang rape in India in December 2012. Do you happen to have any information on the sources of these images that are embedded in the post? I would appreciate any citational information: location, photographer, etc. Thanks a lot!
