Crimes Against Women in India

Wall Street Journal Asia Editor Paul Beckett talks about how the rape of a young woman in Delhi last December shined a light on the ways women can easily be exploited and abused in a country where, in theory and before the law, men and women have equal rights. He looks at two other stories that highlight this: the 2011 murder of a Catholic nun who was opposed to the expansion of mining in a tribal district and the a young woman duped into leaving her village with three young children. Beckett has collaborated on new Journal e-book: Crimes Against Women: Three Tragedies and the Call for Reform in India.
