Rebecca John, Senior Advocate: Spotlight – This week

John, with her legal acumen in laws pertaining to gender-based violence, has been assisting a Delhi High Court Division Bench as an Amicus Curiae in petitions demanding the criminalisation of marital rape.

Her submissions gave an insight into the intricacies of the laws dealing with offences against women in the country. On one occasion, she distinguished the rape law and the alternate legal remedies for women under different penal provisions, arguing that those were crime-specific and rape was outside their purview.
