India's women

Sexual abuse in India remains widespread despite tightening of rape laws in 2013. And attitudes towards women in rural India are often appalling. A poll ranking India as the worst place to be female consulted 548 experts on women’s issues including aid and development professionals, health workers, policy makers, and journalists. So why is the abuse of women in India so hard to tackle? Roundtable is a discussion programme with an edge. Broadcast out of London and presented by David Foster, it's about bringing people to the table, listening to every opinion, and analysing every point of view. From fierce debate to reflective thinking, Roundtable discussions offer a different perspective on the issues that matter to you. Watch it every weekday at 15:30 GMT on TRT World.
