I think education is important and everything begins at home.
“It’s not just the way to stop crime, but it will help people defend crime. Men should be taught to respect women. India would be a better place if men start respecting women and I am hoping it will soon change. We need to talk about our issues with the children and educate them,”
I fail to understand how is it possible for one human being to stand by and watch while another inflicts pain on a third. A group of men engaging in an activity implies something they do for a laugh — a type of team activity.
Gang rape is not a sport or game. It’s an animalistic, sadistic bonding activity for men. But is this evil kind of cruelty to women limited to India? Gang rape and violence towards women is prevalent in every country, and it’s not limited to non-Western countries.
Even to suggest that it only happens in developing economies feeds my friend’s imagination of India as backward and borderline barbaric. Which it isn’t. Still, my adopted country doesn’t get off the hook lightly. Violence against women in Delhi is rampant — it happens on the streets, in public places and behind closed doors.
