A biting critique of rape culture in India shows who is really to blame

The comedy collective, All India Bakchod, recently produced a video admitting that it is the fault of the woman when rape happens. Watch their harsh and satirical attack on victim blaming.

“Because let’s face it, ladies,” says one of the girls. “Rape, it’s your fault.”

This all comes one year after a group of men gang raped a twenty-three year old medical student in the capital city of Delhi.  Events and demonstrations across the country commemorated the needless loss of the young woman.
