Father of Rape Victim Wants Her Named

The father of the young woman whose rape and murder has incited protests across India says he wants her name revealed to the public. "We want the world to know her real name," her father, who has called for legislation on sex crimes to be named in his daughter's honor, told Britain's Sunday People newspaper. "My daughter didn't do anything wrong, she died while protecting herself. I am proud of her. Revealing her name will give courage to other women who have survived these attacks. They will find strength from my daughter." The 23-year-old student died December 28th from her injuries after being gang raped on a bus in New Delhi ten days earlier. Indian authorities have banned the media from revealing her name thus far.
