The Delhi High Court is hearing a challenge to the constitutional validity of the 'marital rape immunity' provided for in the Indian Penal Code. The case has put the spotlight on the crucial issue of consent, the extent of state control on female sexual autonomy, and correcting historical prejudices in law. On We The People, we speak to several lawyers and activists on the debate surrounding this law and ask whether there is 'inherent consent' if someone is married. We also look at the trending social media move called #MarriageStrike and what it means for the youth of the country.
