Abstract

Gender violence in India exists as a state of exception for the ways in which it occupies a nonlegal, liminal space of existence as “bare life” or “life itself.” The rape and murder of Jyoti Singh Pandey unprecedentedly brought this to the surface. This article aims to highlight the ways in which the movement that emerged out of this case engaged with gender violence as a state of exception while the use of new digital technologies by “digital subjects”/“digital parasites” has constituted “sites of exception,” leading to new forms of organizing and creating an emerging politics of gender justice in India.
