I interrupt this program for breaking news in India

While I am here teaching women’s rights and sexual harassment law, the Indian Government has banned a documentary. “India’s Daughter” discusses the 2012 brutal gang rape and murder of a medical student, Jyoti Singh. The Indian Constitution guarantees the “freedom of speech and expression” in Art. 19. I have a daughter who is a Harvard Medical School student. I cry when I think that but for the Grace, this could have been my daughter. But Jyoti Singh was my daughter and the daughter of us all. I cry for the women, for the people of India. I simply cry. Please see the documentary. (Go here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9W6WrShqKGE ) Please read the news about these events on the eve of International Women’s Day, 8 March.

Namasté 🙏

About Jennifer Drobac

R. Bruce Townsend Professor of Law Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law~ I began my journey in the San Francisco Bay area. A student at CPS in Oakland and then at Stanford University, I worked for several years before attending law school, again at Stanford. A trip around the world after taking the California Bar introduced me to more distant lands than I had seen during school days. I returned to clerk for Judge Barefoot Sanders in Dallas, Texas where I gave birth to Michal McDowell-- the best first born daughter and future doctor one can imagine. When she was two, we moved to Santa Cruz, California where I opened my own law practice. After I earned my doctoral degree (in law) at Stanford, I hit the road again and settled here in Indiana where I teach at IU McKinney. As I anticipate exploring the world again as a Fulbright Specialist (starting in India), I start this blog. A travel log of adventures in midlife!
