India abolishes husbands' 'right' to rape wife

Post a comment

For the first time, women in India have legal protection against abuse in their own homes under a law which came into force yesterday. It is the first time Indian law has recognised marital rape, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse of a woman by her husband as crimes. India is a country where the streets are safe - but a woman is not safe inside her own home.
Finally getting rid of that old common law that is lurking out there. Welcome to the 20th century. Back then, the women are safer in the streets than in there own home. But not if your a tourist in India, you definitely want to have a local with you or you can run into some serious bad news. So right now, it's suddenly not ok to rape your wife in India.
