In recent years the epidemic of sexual assault in India has become a prominent topic in both domestic and international media. As a South Asian interest fraternity, Iota Nu Delta's goal is to raise awareness of issues pertaining to South Asians around the world and educate our friends and family here at Boston University. Discussions will center around both recent and past incidents in India, along with a conversation critiquing the reaction of top Indian politicians and police leaders. The goal of this discussion is not to solely focus on describing the incidents, but rather to aid one another in coming to a solution on how to end the perpetuation of assault against women in South Asia.
