Is the Mahila Atyachar Virodhi Mandal (a forum of 40 women's groups in Rajasthan) sheepish about fighting for a non-existent rape case?
No. The retraction doesn't take away from the brutal reality of her gangrape last September, or her sexual exploitation for seven years before that.
But doesn't it mean some egg on your face?
Not at all. Even the union home minister has conceded that we have the country's second highest rate of atrocities against women.
