Indian Men Protest Rape Culture

 

Rape Culture, Gender Stereotypes, Male Privilege

 

I chose this article because I am very interested in rape culture abroad and wanted to explore a different part of the world. I also chose it because the men were recognizing their privilege and acting upon it.
