Uppekha Jain and Pankhuri Awasthi are two women fighting against rape crimes in India. A recent case in Delhi, when a 23-year-old student was gang-raped and died shortly after the ordeal, in one of a number of incidents to see rape being discussed more openly in India. The Delhi attack was covered in recent BBC documentary, India’s Daughter.
Now actress Jain and TV host and actress Awasthi are adding to the conversation with a rap video. One verse reads, “If I walk alone at night, you say I’m irresponsible and lame. Yet when I’m seen with a man, to my family I’ve brought shame.”
The rappers also raised the issue of aborting female fetuses in the rap with the lyrics, “but It’s not just the men, it’s the women too, that slaughter the girl child growing in their womb.”
