IWPC PANEL DISCUSSION : REPORTING ON RAPE

Was the media insensitive or irresponsible while reporting the brutal rape of a 23 year-old on December 16; did excessive coverage fuel a mass frenzy or did it force the government to address the issue? To discuss this and other issues related to the media coverage of the rape, the Indian Women's Press Corps is organising a discussion.
