The degradation of Pinki Pramanik

Below is a link to a BBC story by Soutik Biswas about an Indian athlete who is being severely mistreated by the Indian government.

She is a person of ambiguous gender who competed internationally as a female. She was arrested last month after her live-in partner, who is a woman, charged her with rape. Ms. Pramanik has been lodged in the male ward of a prison in Calcutta and subjected to a battery of inconclusive gender determination tests. A sad story of discrimination.
