FILE - In this Saturday, Dec. 22, 2012 file photo, Indian students hold placards and shout slogans during a protest rally in Gauhati, India. For decades, women have had little choice but to walk away when groped in a crowded bus or train, or to simply cringe as someone tosses an obscene comment their way. Even if they haven't experienced explicit sexual abuse themselves, they live with the fear that it could happen to them or a loved one. The gang rape and beating of a 23-year-old university student on a moving bus in India's capital has taken sexual violence - a subject long hidden in the shadows of Indian society - and thrust it into the light.
