Abstract [en]

Following the case of the brutal raping and death of an Indian student of medicine and the public outcry in India on this event in December 2012, the Western discourse on women in South Asia is more than ever before focussed on the question whether South Asia in general is a dangerous space for women. The article goes into the intricacies of this discourse, relating violence against women to structural forms of violence, but at the same time trying to avoid stereotyping South Asia as particularly misogyn.
