Abstract:
In December 2012 a brutal gang rape occurred in New Delhi India that would inspire protests and social outrage over how women are viewed in not just India, but across the world. Playing a large role in raising awareness of this rape and the issue of women’s rights was the globalized media. When the case initially broke, it was treated as mundane news, but after large international media outlets began reporting on it, people began to take notice to not only that particular gang rape, but the historical trend of rape that India and many other countries have. The purpose of this project is to follow the development of news reports with the reactions of the general public and government officials and identify how the media influences how the people and the government will react.
