Rape Victim’s Father: Name Her

The father of the Indian student who was brutally raped and murdered wants the world to know her name. “My daughter didn’t do anything wrong, she died protecting herself,” he said, saying that her name would be an inspiration to sexual-assault victims. Immediately, social-media users picked up the call—a move that may pressure authorities to release it. The victim’s name was trending at the top of India’s Twitter, though Indian newspapers refused to use it. The Mirror has her name here. India law blocks the naming of victims of sex crimes.
