College Campuses Or Cages?
Last week on the day of Holi, women students at two girls' hostels in Delhi University were barred from stepping out. Earlier this month, Union Minister Maneka Gandhi said early curfews in hostels protect the youth from themselves as they are "hormonally challenged". On this edition of We The People we ask: is gender equality a distant dream in Indian colleges? Are political opinions reserved only for men? Why do we resort to restricting women's freedom for their 'safety' instead of educating the men?
