Is India's New Rape Law Helping Women?

We got a law that upped the punishment for rape, as well as broadened the definition to rape in a grand promise to more and more people – when the fundamental problem was that people who were raped as per the old definitions and punishments weren’t getting justice already in a country with one rape in seven minutes, but not one rape judgment.

Vidyut at AamJanata questions whether the newly enacted rape law in India is really helping women.
