This timely research interrogates the relationship between new media forms and social justice policies. The first volume of LEGIT, like an edited collection of essays, combines short video and animation works, articulating in visual form the legislative process in India and how pending and recent Bills affect aspects of society such as violence against women, food security and disabled rights. Since the highly publicized killing of a 23-year old physiotherapy intern in South Delhi in December 2012, India has received widespread international press coverage about violence against women. Nationwide, public protests have called into question the role of the government and public services in providing safe living environments for its populations. The current climate in India calls for better understandings of the role of government, its representatives, and the work they conduct on behalf of its citizens. It also calls for creating new channels for discussion of social issues by government officials and local communities.
