Rewari, Gurugram and now Faridabad - protests by girls demanding schools in the state of Haryana have spiraled. The state is notorious for its violence against women, and many school-going children have had to drop out after they experienced sexual harassment on the way to school. Some of them have been demanding that their local village schools be upgraded to cater to senior secondary classes so they don't have to go far once they finish Class X. On this special episode of Reality Check, hear tales of grit as protesting girls tell us they are 'prepared to die' to get an education.
