Doc || India's Daughter

Being from the west, I had heard here and there about how severe the rape issue in India and in many other countries around the world, but never before had I been more informed than after watching the film India's Daughter. It tells the story of  Jyoti Singh, a 23 year old woman who was gang raped after going to the movies to watch a film. She received several internal injuries that were followed with surgeries but unfortunately died 13 days later due to the severity of her case. This terrifying story brought incredible amounts of attention to this issue. There were countless protest in her name and in the name of all of the people who had ben raped. The core of this social problem is how women are seen. By creating this concept that women are lesser than men, situations like this and several others will continue to happen. We as a society much re-teach our people that rape is NOT the fault of the person being raped. Also by not shaming the men and women who get raped, there are numerous cases that never get told because of the shaming that comes afterwards. This is such an unbelievable story that needs to be heard. Changes can only be made if we educate. Absolutely must watch documentary.
