In India, rape inside a marriage is not a crime.

To fight the law, RIT Foundation needed to raise awareness. So we got an activist to turn himself in to the police, pretending he raped his wife. Within minutes, he was freed. We captured the whole process — from him interviewing lawyers & victims, to him going into the police station with hidden cameras & being told that raping your wife is not a crime.

The film was launched to fierce reactions from both camps. Thousands of conservatives reported and took down our content 4 times. But censorship didn’t shut the debate. Indian feminist influencers, activists and even #MeToo advocate and actress Saloni Chopra pushed back by sharing our content & encouraging their followers to do the same.
