“At the end of the day – it’s the norms, cultural norms that lead men and women to believe that it’s okay for men to treat women in this way. And so culture change and really getting into a prevention approach and asking men to step up as leaders to challenge violence against women is also a critical part of the solution.”

Mallika was interviewed on CCTV America appearance with Elaine Reyes to talk about violence against women in light of recent rapes in India. Please watch the video here.
