This blog, by a young feminist activist, looks at the widespread phenomenon of under-reporting incidents of gender-based violence and school-related gender-based violence in South Asia.

What it boils down to is bodies that matter, lives that are worth mourning and cases that are shown on primetime channels tend to be the cases that get the attention of civil society, policy makers and authorities.
