Summary
British Asian journalist Radha Bedi travels to India to uncover the reality of life for young women there, six months after a medical student was brutally gang-raped on board a bus in the capital Delhi in December 2012 and later died of her injuries. The story made international headlines and shocked the world, but was this an isolated incident? Horrified by the attack, 28 year old Radha returns to a country she's visited many times to explore the problems woman and girls face in India. Over the course of the documentary, she learns about current attitudes to female members of society, meeting young girls and women who bravely share their personal experiences of harassment and violence.
