Peabody Conversations: India’s Daughter




How should society address hate crimes like rape? By educating children’s hearts, not only their minds, according to Leslee Udwin, director of the Peabody Award-winning documentary India’s Daughter. The film chronicles the infamous gang rape and murder of a young woman in Delhi in 2012, and the protest movement it inspired. In April 2015, Udwin founded ThinkEqual, her solution to sexual assault and rape culture.
