TWO-MINUTE TALKING POINT - The politics of rape in INDIA

at least 42 serving legislators have been charged with rape, sexual harassment, molestation or physical assault against women.

yet they continue to sit in parliaments -- responsible for making laws on gender violence and on women's rights.
they hold positions of power and influence and are entrusted by the people they govern, serve or protect.
few are convicted. many continue to hold office,
and some live with virtual impunity.

TRIGGER WARNING!
The Day My God Died is a feature-length documentary that presents the stories of young girls in India whose lives have been shattered by the child sex trade.
http://documentaryheaven.com/the-day-my-god-died/
The film also introduces us to the heroes of the movement to abolish child sex slavery.
Survivors have emerged to form their own underground railways which rescue and care for victims.

Lost Generations of India
The average age for marrying among rural girls is under fourteen years.
Both the young mothers and their babies suffer from this early childbearing,
a handicap that remains with them for the rest of their lives.
Many die.

Slave Queen: A documentary
There are thousands of adolescents in 70 brothels of Bangladesh. There is always a high demand for children.
No one is there to protect them.
This has to change.

The Politics, Of Rape, Sexuality and Government Meddling in India

Is P------k a rapist? Well, that’s not the question.
The question is:

Is P-------k male or female, because she apparently can be charged with the rape she’s accused of, by her female partner, only if it’s proved she is male!!

" Indian girls Married to god "
Married to god in childhood then at puberty sold for sex, the Devadasi women of south India are most often described as prostitutes.

Very complex culture.
But, where there is no choice for the child,
it still seems like abuse to me,
however normalized or institutionalized or ritualized.

Sex, Death and the Gods
BBC documentary focuses on the Devadasi girls.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zL67d0-82PA
http://documentaryheaven.com/sex-death-and-the-gods/
a controversial journey through the Devadasi history, traditions and their now hidden lives in the villages and towns of Karnataka.



Prostitutes of God
a documentary about the Devadasi tradition.

http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/prostitutes-of-god/
We are invited to a remote mud hut to meet two older Devadasi women a mother and daughter who reflect back on their lives and ask the question: what kind of religion turns parents into pimps and their children into prostitutes?

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/expat/expatlife/8008562/Indias-prostitutes-of-God.html

In Hinduism, a devadasi (Sanskrit: servant of god) is a girl "dedicated" to worship and service of a deity or a temple for the rest of her life.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/6729927.stm

http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2008/08/04/080804fa_fact_dalrymple

http://www.samarthbharat.com/files/devadasihistory.pdf

Recently the devadasi system has started to disappear, having been outlawed in all of India in 1988.

http://www.hindu.com/2006/01/30/stories/2006013020130300.htm
http://www.hinduwebsite.com/hinduism/h_prostitution.asp

However, devadasis still exist in India today, as shown in a 2004 report by the National Human Rights Commission of the Government of IndiaAccording to this report, “after initiation as devadasis, women migrate either to nearby towns or other far-off cities to practice prostitution” (p200).
