30 June 2013

print version of this article print version

An election campaign poster in Hindi by the Aam Admi Party widely seen on the back of three wheeled auto rickshaws in Delhi, says that "if you vote for the corrupt, rapes of women will continue". The poster is making a disgusting political use of rapes and sexual violence against women. Its seem to suggest that rapes have to do with a political party or with the party in power and or in the govt., a pretty reductionist view of patriarchy this.
