Out Today: CRIMES AGAINST WOMEN Ebook

Crimes Against Women  EPB By Staff of The Wall Street Journal, TheAs 2012 came to a close, the gang rape and subsequent death of a woman in India’s capital shed light on the struggle many Indian women face in a country where chauvinistic and misogynistic attitudes prevail. The case made headlines around the globe, provoked nationwide protests, and prompted national introspection about the broader spectrum of harassment, from stalking to groping, that often goes unpunished.

In Crimes Against Women: Three Tragedies and the Call for Reform in India (out now), The Wall Street Journal’s India bureau explores this horrendous crime and others that highlight the experience of Indian women in the 21st century, profiling the central figures involved in these everyday dramas, many of whom are speaking for the first time. With gripping emotion, this ebook original exposes the hopes and the catastrophes, the bravery, and the abuse that are the daily lot of millions of women in the world’s largest democracy.
