Nisha Bellinger published an article in The Conversation on Aug. 27.

Her article, “India has a sexual assault problem that only women can fix,” notes that India is the world’s most dangerous country for sexual violence against women.

Bellinger’s research suggests that one of the reasons India has not been able to effectively address crimes against women is the lack of women in national political office. Research shows that having women in government can lead to more and better laws to safeguard women’s well-being.
