Notes: In India, 2 in 3 women are raped by their husbands and it is totally legal. The law has an exception where rape inside a marriage is not a crime. To change the law, RIT Foundation, an Indian NGO fighting for women’s rights, needed to raise awareness. So we found Sameer, an activist, and sent him to a real police station to turn himself in, pretending that he had actually raped his wife. Within minutes, he was freed. We captured the whole process — from him interviewing lawyers & victims, to him going into the police station with hidden cameras & being told that raping your wife is not a crime. The footage was turned into a documentary which was launched online to fierce reactions from both camps. Thousands of conservatives reported and took down our content 4 times. But censorship didn’t shut the debate. Indian feminist influencers, activists and even #MeToo advocate and actress Saloni Chopra pushed back by sharing our content & encouraging their followers to do the same. Thanks to RIT foundation, the case to change marital rape laws will be heard this year at the Delhi High Court.
