Despite many companies having ICCs, sexual predators are let off and the victim told “to adjust”. Professional education must be mandatory for the police, MPs and civil servants

Cut or Release?

Writing has also often been trimmed of content so as to ensure it is politically correct. Recently Roald Dahl’s children’s books has been through such censorship. The problems arise when censorship extends to adulthood—often curtailing freedom of speech and expression.

Diversity is the key

There is a rainbow on the cover of this issue of India Legal.

In Kozhikode, Kerala, a sessions court referred to the victim’s attire as “sexually provocative” before granting bail to an activist in a sexual harassment case. Such mysogynistic attitudes are deplorable in the context of increasing crimes against women

The Unkindest Cut of All
