Progressive and conservative values

I guess people in this group [are] saying "progressive South Indians," but there are lot of South Indian people who wouldn’t think this progressively, and wouldn’t be comfortable with all of this, and who have different opinions.

[...] I guess understanding the cultural differences is something that they [university staff who work with sexual assault policies] can consider to work on.
