Rape is the fastest-growing crime in India, up by 875% since records began 40 years ago. One in every three rape victims will be a child, and almost two in three will be young women like the 23-year-old gang-raped and murdered in Delhi this winter..

India’s government has already brought forward a new law with tougher sentences for sex crimes like rape, stalking and sex trafficking. But in a country where 92% of men in the capital know someone who's harassed or sexually assaulted a woman, harsher punishment are not enough.

We call on Indian President Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to spearhead a public education campaign to battle the sexual violence epidemic by spreading the truth about sexual assault.

Tactics like these have already worked once. In India, the Bell Bajao campaign dramatically increased awareness of laws on and discussion of domestic violence. Help them work again: Write President Mukherjee and Prime Minister Singh today!

Rapists must be punished, the women are innocent victums. Something is wrong with a society that looks down on women this way. India please improve your standards.

Thanks Ben for listing these other petitions here! But you NEED NOT BE ON FACEBOOK to sign this watchdog petition! The share on FB option is only an extra one can, but does not have to click! Your signature will be registered after signing. I agree that the form stating "..almost there.." can be misleading.
