Delhi High Court passes split verdict on criminalisation of #maritalrape

Justice Hari Shankar said he does not agree with Justice Rajiv Shakdher that Exception 2 in the rape law is unconstitutional. scroll.in/a/1023690
Exception 2 in the rape law states that forcible sexual intercourse by a man with his wife is not rape unless the wife is below 15 years of age.

The petitioners’ contended that the exception to #MaritalRape is unconstitutional and should be struck down. scroll.in/a/1023690
“Basically [the Centre is] saying that if you’re a poor or illiterate woman then #MaritalRape shouldn’t be criminalised. This is the Union of India, this is the government and this is why we are before the court," Advocate Karuna Nundy said scroll.in/a/1023690

I'm surprised I only got a few ridiculous comments in response to posting this including one guy who thought marital rape was funny and that those who speak against it hate men. So my "bona fides". Married to one almost 31 years, mother of one. Daughter of one. 1/
But given the ignorance I've seen displayed about pre-Roe realities, it's not a stretch to think that similar ignorance about #maritalrape exists. I have no connection w/ this lawyer but the synopsis of the history of marital rape is good.

"Until the 1970's, the rape laws in every state in the union included an exception if the rapist and the victim were husband and wife."

Whether the woman consented or not she was SOL. The widely held opinion about her "wifely duty" applied. 3/

LATEST: Man Wins in Female Ward, Women’s Reservation Bill Loses to Identity Politics

At a time when women’s reservation in politics has been under debate for more than 25 years, we can’t afford to have our attention diverted by the woke agenda.

Pls 🔁 vaishnavisundar.com/womens-reserva… ImageImageImageImage
As of 2021, the global average for women in Parliament is 25.5%. There are only 3 countries in the entire world where the number of female MPs reaches 50% or over. Rwanda leads the way with an impressive 61%, Cuba and UAE with 53% and 50%
#womeninpolitics
vaishnavisundar.com/womens-reserva…
But this wasn’t always the case. Before the 1994 Rwandan genocide, the female participation average was a paltry 17%. Owing to the large number of males that were killed during the war, the gov that formed in 2003 came up with a quota system for females. vaishnavisundar.com/womens-reserva…

BREAKING: #KarnatakaHighCourt in a judgment today has said that "A brutal act of sexual assault on
the wife, against her consent, albeit by the husband, cannot but
be termed to be a rape."
#MaritalRape
The bench penned that "Such sexual assault by a husband on
his wife will have grave consequences on the mental sheet of the
wife, it has both psychological and physiological impact on her."
"Such acts of husbands scar the soul of the wives. It is, therefore, imperative for the law makers to now “hear the voices of
silence”," the bench added.

Delhi High Court is hearing Adv @karunanundy on the marital rape exception case.

Nundy: Until marital rape becomes an offence it will remain condoned. It is about the woman's right to say "no".
Nundy: The normative force of this judgment will go a long way in helping reach the long-cherished ideal of equal dignity for all.

#maritalrape @karunanundy
@karunanundy: Marriage is not and cannot be a license to engage in forcible sexual intercourse with a woman.

I grew up around aunts not much older than me telling me how my uncles would enter the bedrooms after a hard day’s work at night with heavy whiskey smell on their breath and just have their way with them as they plead to them in hushed voices:
1/n
-Not today please.
-I have my period
-Please wait til the baby is born. (After a number of miscarriages)
-I can’t today. I’m grieving. (Mom died)
2/n
The entitled men didn’t say a word. Never bothered to even look at their women’s faces let alone hear their pleas. Physically overpowered them if they resisted. All happened in the quiet of the night. And minutes later, turned around and fell asleep. 3/n
