Nirbhaya

A story that hits the heart.

http://www.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/world/2013/12/04/worlds-untold-stories-india-nirbhaya.cnn.html

As most people know it, the story of Nirbhaya, sparked the beginning of a revolution for women’s rights in India. She became the symbol of how women were being treated -respected and continued to be dishonored. This story not only sparked a serious conversation regarding women’s safety, but highlighted how rape was defined. My semester project will focus to explain the conversation through videos and photos, a blog that will serve as an archive for what happened. It will highlight how the media, film, and songs played a crucial role in making the story of Nirbhaya an international inspiration. It will also focus on how the major news outlets covered this issue, what was the conversation, and how it inspired film and music, especially Bollywood.

The Blog will provide a closer connection of this case with the topic of women and rape.
