End rape impunity

Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde :

For too long violent criminals have attacked India’s women and girls with no fear of consequences. It is time to bring an end to the war on women. We call on you to take immediate action to set up fast-track courts for victims of sexual violence across the country, and take every step necessary to protect India’s women and ensure justice is done.

End rape impunity

Last week, a 23-year-old student was gang-raped for hours and nearly beaten to death with iron rods on a bus in Delhi. Then she was dumped on the roadside to die. This war on women must stop!

A real threat of speedy trials and long years in prison for these brutal attacks is the only way to prevent more girls and women being violated and killed. Let's build one lakh voices now to demand immediate action on fast-tracked justice.

In response to massive public outrage, government officials are meeting on January 4 to discuss the issue of India's rampant rape crisis. Unless we keep up the pressure, this meeting could amount to nothing. Sign this urgent petition to Home Minister Shinde to pursue legislation to end rape impunity. If our call is big enough, he will be forced to act to protect all women and girls. Click to sign the urgent petition, then send this to everyone.
