Indian policewomen stand alert behind a barricade during a protest calling for better safety for women following the rape of a student in the Indian capital, in New Delhi on December 27, 2012. Protests across India over the last week against sex crimes have denounced the police and government, with the largest in New Delhi at the weekend prompting officers to cordon off areas around government buildings.
