A year after rape case, a sense of change in India
from The Wall Street Journal
The media called her the "Park Street victim" — a 37-year-old woman who said she was gang-raped in Kolkata. Ashamed and depressed, she hid her identity in public for many months. She has since come forward, encouraged by the overwhelming public revulsion against a fatal attack on another woman one year ago. That crime, on a bus in Delhi, and the publicity that followed have prompted a surge in the reporting of offenses that women in India once suffered in silence and broken the taboo on the discussion of violence against them.
