The massive protests that swept India after the gang rape of a paramedical student in the capital last year may seem to have disappeared from the national headlines.

The young woman who was assaulted died; the government gave her family a new apartment and financial compensation. The accused are on trial and a new law has stiffened the penalties for sexual assault.

But on one street in New Delhi, the movement — dubbed the 16 December Revolution after the date the gang rape occurred — is still alive, kept in the public eye by bandanna-wearing, placard-wielding activists who sleep in plastic tents and hold daily candlelight vigils.
