<<Young girls being sold in India to repay loans, says human rights body
Young girls in the northern Indian state of Rajasthan are being sold as <repayment> for loans their parents cannot afford, the national body that protects human rights has said. The National Human Rights Commission has issued a notice to the state government demanding a police inquiry and answers within a month to what it called an <abominable> practice. People living in many rural areas in India often have to borrow money from fellow villagers when a family member falls seriously ill and needs medical treatment. Local media reports say that in half a dozen districts around Bhilwara, if a family cannot repay a loan, the aggrieved creditor has complained to the <caste panchayats> or caste councils. By way of <settlement>, the councils have ordered the family to hand over their daughter - sometimes more than one depending on the size of the loan - so that the creditor can sell her to a trafficker to recoup his money. In its notice, the commission said that if the family refuses to sell their daughter, <their mothers are subjected to rape on the diktats of caste panchayats for the settlement of disputes>. Among the cases highlighted by the commission is that of a man who borrowed 1.5m rupees (£15,800) from a neighbour who was forced by the panchayat to sell his sister and 12-year-old daughter to settle the debt. In another, a man who borrowed 600,000 rupees (£6,300) when his wife fell ill and needed hospital treatment was unable to repay it. The panchayat compelled him to hand over his young daughter to the creditor, who later sold her to a trafficker in Agra. From there, <she was sold three times and became pregnant four times>, the commission said. The commission has sent an official to Rajasthan to investigate the cases. The Bhilwara district collector, Ashish Modi, said the crimes were the first of their kind. <They are total illegal. The police are investigating and we will make sure the victims get justice and the guilty are punished,> Modi said.>>

<<I was supposed to grow up to be a 'good Indian woman'. I chose freedom instead.
As a young girl growing up in a very traditional Mumbai family, I knew I was expected to grow up to be a certain sort of woman.
Here's what I was taught. A good Indian woman is obedient and lives the life her parents and society tell her to live. A good Indian woman gets <married off> early and becomes a mother quickly because that is her primary purpose. A good Indian woman doesn't reveal any part of her body or her sexual desires. A good Indian woman ignores her own needs and lives her life serving others. My mother, my grandmother and many women before them had lived exactly this life. I was pressured to marry the first man who was interested, an <arranged marriage> where I knew next to nothing about my <future husband>. I was taught to cook all the traditional dishes, because, in my mum's words: <What will your mother-in-law say if you canít cook well?> I was told I should never reveal my legs or upper arms, to cover up and not tempt the gaze or hands of men around me. I tried to become the woman my family wanted. I stu-died hard in school, received good grades. I was a quiet girl, eyes downcast, too shy to speak to boys. I didn't go to any parties, wasn't allowed to stay out after 7pm. But I was born with a fire in my belly. With a voice in my head that questioned everything I was being taught by society and family. That voice in my head soon turned into a loud voice that came out of my mouth. I said things to my family like: <Why should I always be quiet?> Or: <Why are men allowed to do such and such and not women?> Obviously this didn't go down very well. I had multiple aunties and uncles warning my close family that <this girl will ruin you>. But that didn't silence my voice. Because I saw how badly women in my culture were treated. It was always the women cooking, cleaning and serving others from dawn until dusk. It was always the women told to <adjust> to everything, from a husband who beat you up, to a mother-in-law who treated you badly, to being groped by men every time you left the house. Women were told that this was their lot and they just had to shut up and put up with it. I didn't want to shut up and put up. There was no single moment when I decided that I was going to give up on being the <good Indian woman>. Instead, a series of mo-ments and days and years led to me giving up on conforming to that traditional ideal. I suspect seeing how unhappy my own mother's life was (a woman who had a literature degree but now spent her days endlessly cooking and cleaning) had a lot to do with it. I remember when I was 18, I decided to get my hair cut very short, right under my ears. This was unforgivable in my mother's eyes, because an Indian woman's beauty is her long, dark tresses. I also remember going to college in a short skirt that exposed my legs, and my mother's thunderous face as I left our home. I realised that giving up on being the <good Indian woman> meant I could finally become the woman I was meant to be. That was the beginning of a long journey, of many battles. I found myself a job in Bengaluru, about an hour's flight away. And I remember stepping into my new rented flat, reli-shing being alone for the first time in my life. I recall vividly pouring myself a small glass of Baileys (my drink of choice then) and sitting in my shorts (something I was never allowed to wear at home), and feeling as if I had won the lottery. And from that day, I went on to make so many changes in my life, eventually moving to the UK in 2005. The sweet taste of Baileys always reminds me of my first taste of freedom.>>

<<The French porn industry is facing its moment of reckoning. A two-year police investigation has blown the lid off widespread abuse of vulnerable women. A Senate report is now aiming to improve condi-tions by bringing about stricter controls. In this show, we meet three women who are trying to change the way the adult film industry in France operates. First, we speak to an adult film star who opens up about her experiences and the abuse she has faced. We then meet a senator who co-authored the report <Porn: Hell behind the scenes>. Finally, we speak to an adult film director/actress who is offering an alternative and more inclusive vision of pornographic films.>>
