Agenda for change

MUMBAI: Marking the first anniversary of the horrific Delhi gang rape that shook the country on December 16, 2012 and paved the way for new laws on women safety, CNN-IBN has put together a series of shows on women related issues under its programming Agenda for Change – One Year On.

The first show Men Against the Tide, will showcase men who have made it their mission to empower women and will go on air on December 13, 2013 at 8:30 PM.

On December 14, 2013, at 9:30 PM a special episode of The Citizen Journalist Show will engage viewers in a discourse with Anubha Bhonsle, who will speak about women safety and the shrinking public spaces for women.

The personal loss and the fight for justice that Nirbhaya’s parents endured will be highlighted in a special show Nirbhaya: The Fearless One on December 16, 2013 at 7:30 PM.

The last part of the programming, The Justice Dialogue will have CNN-IBN Deputy Editor Sagarika Ghose analysing the scenario of gender justice in India and investigating whether there has been any significant progress in administering the same, since the horrendous gang rape that resulted in the death of the victim Nirbhaya.

Commenting on this special programming line-up, Rajdeep Sardesai, Editor-in-Chief, IBN Network said, “The women of our country have faced immense injustice for decades.
