HELP STOP THE RAPE OF WOMEN AND CHILDREN IN INDIA!

This petition had 136 supporters


Crimes against women in India have increased alarmingly. Specifically, rape has increased 873% over the last 40 years, with 2,487 reported cases in 1971 and 24,206 reported cases in 2011. This is largely because sex offenders in India are not harshly punished for these crimes. In addition, women who report being raped are often subjected to criminal interrogation. They face humiliation and embarrassment, and many are encouraged to drop the charges to protect their reputations. We need to act globally to put an end to these violent acts against the women of India.
