Age-old customs in patriarchal societies seek proof of a woman’s virginity before marriage. Arguments of a feisty young girl against her fiancé’s demands are played out in a powerful courtroom drama in this episode of Sex ki Adalat. We take a close look at ethical as well as scientific aspects of placing the onus of virginity on women.

Sex Ki Adalat discusses critical issues related to sexual and reproductive health and rights of the youth and adolescents. The five-episode courtroom drama series builds on the impact and success of the edutainment show Main Kuch Bhi Kar Sakti Hoon by the Population Foundation of India (PFI) and creator-director Feroz Abbas Khan, and focuses on sensitive subjects through real-life situations.
