Because rape is not always about sex from Amrit Vatsa on Vimeo.

I NEVER REALIZED how much I’ve actually gender policed in my lifetime. I might not have said it aloud, but I’ve definitely made judgments about men and women who I thought didn’t “fit into the mold” of what I thought was proper gendered behavior. The people at No Country For Women, an NGO based in India, are trying to fight rape from a multi-faceted perspective. They do a fantastic job of showing how rape is not just about sex, gender, power, or otherwise — it’s about all of those things, and more. Their mission has helped raise awareness on this subject, and brings a greater understanding that rape is not just an “Indian” problem — it’s a global epidemic.
