Kavita Krishnan - Secretary, All India Progressive Women's Association

In a special edition of HARDtalk, recorded in the Indian capital, Stephen Sackur talks to the prominent women's rights campaigner, Kavita Krishnan. Delhi is a proud capital of the nation - a noisy and vibrant place - but a city stained by its record on sexual violence. More rapes are recorded here than any other Indian city. Just over a year ago a 23-year-old medical student died after a brutal gang rape on a bus which shocked the nation and prompted millions of people to demand government action to end gender violence. Is India becoming a safer more equal society for women?
