  1. Indian Leader Breaks Silence on Violence Against Women

    India’s newly elected Prime Minister Narendra Modi has spoken out against gender-based violence in his first address to parliament. He argued that respecting and protecting women should be a priority for all 1.25 billion Indians and urged fellow politicians to refrain from “politicizing rape.” His comments are a response to a particularly extreme wave of violence in Uttar Pradesh state, where two teenage girls were gang-raped and hanged last month and two more women, aged 42 and 19, have been found hanging from trees in recent days.
