Women’s rights have been the focus in many areas of public debate given the number of sexual violence, harassment and domestic abuse cases highlighted in the media but laws that are in place are seldom implemented because it is still not seen as s serious human rights issue. Will the new government change this? Honestly I don’t know. Will the new government make it worse? I have fears that the conservative wave that is sweeping india at the moment is going to make it a lot tougher for us to access rights.
