Indian women take safety into their own hands

New laws not enough to deter sexual violence amid deep cultural problems, say members of self-defence group.

    Women activists in India say new laws are not enough to deter rapists. They say deep cultural problems often prevent action against sexual violence. The latest attack was on a photojournalist in Mumbai.

    Meanwhile, in New Delhi a group of women has been taking their safety into their own hands. Al Jazeera’s Karishma Vyas reports from the Indian capital.
