One woman's escape from India abuse

A victim of sexual and physical abuse tells the BBC how she has "come out of hell" after reporting her husband to police and ending years of violence.

The brutal rape of a young woman on a bus in Delhi last year sparked a national debate about gender-based violence in India.

As the anniversary of that attack approaches, there are signs that more women in India may now be coming forward to report sexual violence.

The BBC's Rupa Jha has been speaking to one woman about the abuse she suffered at the hands of her husband.

During October 2013 the BBC's 100 Women season is seeking to shine a light on life for women in the 21st Century - the risks, challenges and opportunities they face every day, in every country. Have your say on Twitter and Facebook using the hashtag #100women.
