Abstract

We are grateful to Aashish Singh, Abhayraj Naik, Vikas Kumar and Vishnupad for their valuable inputs on various drafts of this paper, and Ravi Srinivas Eruku for his help with visual representation of the data. The gangrape of a Delhi physiotherapy student in December 2012 has sparked a national debate on the incidence and causes of rape and other sexual offences in India. One strand of this debate is the assertion that acts of rape and sexual violence occur with greater frequency and intensity in urban rather than rural India.
