‘One Billion Rising’ campaign launched in Rajasthan

Twenty-five years have passed since Rajasthan witnessed its last known case of sati ; it has been 20 years since Bhanwri Devi of Bhateri was allegedly gang-raped for raising her voice against girl child marriages; and it took 15 years for a gang-rape victim in the J.C. Bose hostel rape case to get justice.
