The Unsafe Sex: The Female Binary and Public Violence Against Women

Nalini Natarajan (Author)

While the brutal violence against the victim sent shockwaves throughout the country, the rapists (as well as other men on the streets) caused further moral outrage by blaming the victim for being out at night and holding her responsible for her rape. What does this signify? Is there an ongoing visceral war waged by men against women?
