Last week in Delhi, a 23 year-old young woman was gang raped and violently attacked by six men in a private bus. The woman’s male friend, who accompanied her was also brutally attacked. The young woman is now fighting for her life and people across India are outraged. At Orinam, we are deeply saddened by this horrific incident. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and we hope justice will be served.

Women are one of the strongest allies of the LGBT movement and at Orinam we consider gender equality and women’s rights very dear to our hearts. We are proud to stand up with women in their struggles and speak up against the inequalities they face. We have done it before and we will continue to do so.

On Dec 19th, while protesting outside the residence of the Chief minister of Delhi, All India Progressive Women’s Association’s secretary Kavita Krishnan gave one of the most powerful speeches about violence against women and the gang rape incident. Orinam.net is honored to bring you the Tamil translation of Krishnan’s speech. (Thanks to Orinam members Shri and Aniruddhan Vasudevan).
