In the years that have followed after the brutal gang rape and murder of a young woman in December 2012, famously known as the 'Nirbhaya' case, there has been a concerted effort by media across the county to report more on sexual assault and rape. The aim of this research study titled ‘Gender Sensitivity and the Coverage of Rape in the Indian News Media: Ten Years After the Nirbhaya Case’ is to look beyond the quantity of rape reportage and instead assess the quality, in particular, how gender-sensitive the Indian media’s coverage of rape has been in the past decade. The research study has been supported by Population First, UNFPA and the Royal Norwegian Embassy in New Delhi.
