In Conversation with Sonia Faleiro: The Good Girls

In May 2014, the bodies of 2 teenage girls were found hanging from a tree in the Budaun district of Uttar Pradesh in Northern India. It was reported that the girls had been victims of a gang rape.

This story sparked scandal and rage across the nation - but there were serious questions raised about the truth of what had occurred - author and journalist Sonia Faleiro spent four long years investigating the case, talking to relatives, the police, and even the accused...

We had the amazing opportunity to speak with Sonia about her book The Good Girls: An Ordinary Killing, which details her investigation and the events that took place. We also had the chance to pick her brains on the wider religious, societal and cultural problems plaguing the women and girls of India.
