Why Rape And Sexual Violence Continue

“I will not forget what happened today, one year ago”

This video was released by Video Volunteers on December 16, 2013 to commemorate Nirbhaya, who died in the 2012 Delhi gang rape incident. The incident was the only conviction of 706 reported cases of rape in Delhi that year. Statistics indicate that in India a woman is still raped every 22 minutes. The conviction rate for rape stands at an abysmal 25%.

This video provokes interesting discussions on the reasons why rape and sexual violence continue.
