Delhi Gangrape
Chandigarh, March 14: A psychology journal has dedicated it's edition to the brave 23 year old para- medical students who was gangraped on December 16 2012.

The Indian Journal of Psychology has dedicated an entire edition to Nirbhaya. It is one of the oldest journals of psychology. It was established by Calcutta University in 1962.

According to a media report, it contains 'research articles compiled by women scholars'. The theme of the edition is 'Suluting the spirit of Nirbhaya'!May her sacrifice awaken Indian consciousness and conscience'.

"It was a challenge to bring out this special edition particularly when the journal was under the threat of folding up. An edition released last year and this special edition have given it a boost," Jitender Mohan, professor emeritus at PU and editor in chief of IJP was quoted saying in The Times of India.

The guest editor for the edition was Meena Sehgal, professor at Punjab University's psychology department. "As academicians, this is one way in which we could have given a message to the society and salute the spirit of Nirbhaya. To bring out something concrete in the new edition was the motive," Sehgal was quoted saying.

Scholars from across the world have contributed to the edition.

Nirbhaya, was recently honoured with a US "woman of courage" award posthumously for "inspiring people to work together to end violence against women in India and around the world."
