Chapter 1 in Women, Political Struggles and Gender Equality in South Asia, 2014, pp 1-16 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract On 16th of December 2012, in the late evening of a balmy Delhi night, a young physiotherapy student boarded a bus with her male companion after an evening out at the movies. She had her whole life and a long professional career ahead of her — a career made possible by the efforts of her family, who had sold their rural farm land to move to the city to enable her to pursue her education.
