2. I wonder where the Gulabi Gang is in all this

I don't know if anyone has seen the fabulous but horribly frustrating documentary "Pink Saris" but there is a woman, Sampat Pal Devi, who fights for the rights of women India.

More about her and the Gulabi Gang here:

4. It sucks that it took what happened to bring this to the fore

But it's great to see so many people demonstrating against this.

Thanks for sharing these pictures.
