Why isn’t marital rape treated as rape in India? Was Maneka Gandhi merely articulating a more widely held belief? And what are the ramifications of justifying marital rape in an Indian socio-cultural context? SheThePeople talks to Supreme Court advocate Karuna Nundy for the low-down on the legalities and social fall-out.

Nundy specializes in human rights litigation and has been building dialogue around rape laws in the country. She has been vociferous with her comments and campaign for having stringent and clear laws on marital rape. She has battled some of India’s most controversial laws including one that made posting offensive comments on social media a crime.

Here’s Nundy in conversation with Amrita Tripathi.
