In Brief

Following the assault and death of a female student in Delhi, the Indian government is developing a device to reduce crimes against women.

According to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, 1 in 3 women worldwide have been sexually assaulted.

In the United States alone, there are over 200,000 sexual assaults a year. That’s roughly an assault every 2 minutes. Of those assaults, over half are never reported to police, and over 97 percent of rapists never serve jail time.

In an apparent response to the December 16th gang rape that occurred on a bus in India, and resulted in the death of the 23-year-old victim, the Indian Centre for Development of Advanced Computing is creating plans for a new device they hope could reduce these kind of crimes.
