Anita Raj on Gender-Based Violence in India

On March 17, 2015, Dr. Anita Raj of the Center for Gender Equity and Health at the University of California, San Diego spoke to the IGWG about her ongoing research on gender-based violence in India. She described two recently published studies: “Parent and Adolescent Social Norms related to Girls’ Marital Choice, Spousal Violence, and Family Planning in Rural Maharashtra, India” and “Understanding Rape in India using Crime in India Reports.” Dr. Raj’s research continues to add to our understanding of the transmission of violence norms and of the dynamics of violence in India.
