Event Description

The idea to create “Priya’s Shakti” came after the horrible gang rape and murder of a young woman on a bus in New Delhi in 2012. The incident caused an enormous outcry across India, particularly among young people — both female and male. Many people called for a cultural shift especially in terms of empowering women in modern society and challenging deep-rooted patriarchal views that affect both women and men. As a result, we created a new Indian “superhero” – Priya – who is a rape survivor with the capacity to inspire others and promote change.
