Devastating human rights violations worldwide are committed against women and girls. Gender inequality remains a problem everywhere, especially in India.

But in India, crimes are committed even against unborn female babies. Young entrepreneurs there are refusing to accept traditional mindsets and power structures. They’re tackling violence against women with the help of technology.

Indian entrepreneurs are tackling traditional mindsets and violence against women with technology. In 2012, the world watched with bated breath as tens of thousands of Indian activists – both women and men – stood united in demands for justice for a young woman brutally gang-raped on a bus in Delhi who later died from the trauma she suffered during the attack. The country was galvanized, and looked on the brink of a social revolution. The event turned into a touchstone for many young entrepreneurs no longer willing to let violence against women go unchallenged. Female founders in particular have worked to tackle the issue by keeping it in the public eye, creating safer cities, and seeking to change the image of women as prey or victims. With technology-driven solutions, they’re demonstrating a vision: sexual violence against women worldwide has to stop.
