Jyoti Singh- December 16 2012
Jyoti Singh was a medical student, close to graduating as a doctor of Physiotherapy. She was 21 years old. After a university exam she went out to a movie with a friend, and boarded a bus to go home. On the bus, she was brutally raped and murdered by 6 men, each of them BLAMING HER for being out past 9 oclock at night.
This would trigger a nationwide outrage by women and men who no longer wished to live in a Rape Culture…
Rape culture is a term that was coined by feminists in the United States in the 1970's. It was designed to show the ways in which society blamed victims of sexual assault and normalized male sexual violence.
