Priya: Shiva's chosen

(what's a "Modern Worthy"? click here to find out!)
A new comic book with a female rape survivor as its “super hero” has been launched to focus attention on the problem of sexual violence in India.

Been reading the Indian epic Mahabharata recently, and was a little disappointed about some of the portrayal of women therein — I love that this story comes along and literally empowers a woman through some of the same figures that show up in the Mahabharata (Shiva and Parvati).
