Do women and girls feel safer? Are perpetrators of sexual violence held accountable? Or is justice languishing in courtrooms and police stations while women continue to fear for their safety every time they step out of their homes?
Going home again is rarely an option for girls and women who have been forced into prostitution in India. Whether they have escaped or have been rescued, their families often shun them. The result is that girls and women need support to establish new lives.
For all the challenges that India may have, it's a wonderful country. The people are warm, smart, generous and tireless workers. I hope this is the first of many trips that I will take to this country.
