“Don’t teach me what to wear- teach your sons not to rape” meeting in London

An open meeting in solidarity with India’s anti-rape protests and to confront gender violence in Britain will be held on 23rd January 2013 at the London School of Economics.

The brutal gang-rape of a 23-year-old woman student on a bus in Delhi on 16th December 2012 has led to protests on an unprecedented scale.

The meeting titled "Don't Teach Me What To Wear – Teach Your Sons Not To Rape", will answer the following questions: What are the implications of the protest movement in India and how can we support it? What are the changes being demanded at a legal, political and social level? How do we resist the colonial and racist responses to these events in Britain? What do the Delhi protests mean for struggles against gender violence in Britain and globally?

Kavita Krishnan of the All-India Progressive Women’s Association, one of the activists centrally involved in the protests, will be speaking to the meeting from India.

The meeting has been organised by the LSE Gender Institute in collaboration with Imkaan and the South Asia Solidarity Group and several other organisations.
