“Public outcry” against child rape vital to change culture in India: UNICEF

14 February 2018

That’s according to Dr Yasmin Ali Haque, the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Representative in India, speaking to UN News, in the aftermath of the rape of an eight-month-old baby girl at the end of last month.
